Meet the Staff: Karley Wajda

Hello! My name is Karley, and I am a senior here at IU South Bend. While I am counting down the days until graduation, I am very excited to spend my last semester with The Preface. I am a communications major with a concentration in organizational communication and a minor in interpersonal communication. I have a passion for public speaking and plan to make a career out of it after graduating. 

Meet the staff: Tahyia Alvi

My name is Tahyia Alvi. I am a senior at IU South Bend, a peer mentor and a staff writer at The Preface. I’m majoring in Political Science, with minors in Paralegal Studies and Sociology. As a Pakistani, I don’t see much representation of South Asians in the IU South Bend community, so I’m delighted to share some things about myself with you all. 

A chat and podcast with SGA president

Within student governance, there are many roles to fill. Perhaps the most widely known position is the president of the student body – but how well do students really know their leaders? While this role can be glamorized, the real life duties of the position have many genuine implications. This is why the job is perfect for someone like Christian Martinez.

Hop into the year of the rabbit

Jan. 22 marked the year of the rabbit in the lunar calendar. The Lunar New Year – also referred to as the Chinese New Year – is celebrated worldwide, primarily in a number of East Asian countries where it is an observed holiday. Even now, celebrations are growing around the world with each passing year. This year, we celebrate the rabbit – it has waited 12 long years for its time to shine, with the last year of the rabbit all the way back in 2011!
