LETTER: Purdue University Northwest Chancellor Should be Removed

This letter addresses concerns about the chancellor of Purdue Northwest. While IUPUI's campus is run by IU administration and Purdue will soon be departing from our campus, the editors of The Campus Citizen decided to move forward with the publication of this letter as this issue affects the Purdue students on our campus. The following is the second of two letters addressing the Purdue Board of Trustees sent in by the Purdue Northwest Faculty Senate Chair Thomas Roach. The first was sent on Dec. 23, 2022, and the second was sent on Mar. 23, 2023


A Student for Change

Noah Thomas, a junior at IUPUI, is taking a stand. Thomas has observed politics his whole life and the 2018 mass shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, inspired Thomas to go to his first protest and realized the importance of being a voice for change. 


IUPUI School Undergoes Name Change

IUPUI’s Informatics and Computing School has changed to the Luddy School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering on Jan. 11 following the split between IU and Purdue. The name change is due to IU wanting to make the change more apparent and create a single identity for the two schools. This has come with reactions from students at IUPUI. “I think there could be small problems with it when there’s already buildings of the same name in Bloomington,” said one student.

Located in Eskenazi Hall in the Herron School of Art and Design building, the Museum of Broken Relationships is open to all visitors for free, not just students or faculty. The gallery shares images into heartbreak from the local area of Indiana as well as from across the world.

Narcan Nasal Spray

IUPUI Hosts Naloxone Training as Part of Larger State Initiative

As part of a larger, statewide, movement to make Naloxone and training to use it more accessible, IUPUI hosted a free Narcan training in the Campus Center on Feb. 1. Naloxone is a medication used to reverse opioid overdose to be used in emergency situations and not as a long-term solution to opioid addiction or abuse. Narcan is the nasal spray device used to administer naloxone. With the rise of lethal drugs, such as fentanyl and xylazine, being laced into other substances, accessibility to proper overdose treatment has been an increasing concern for state officials.

Editorial: A Look Into What IUI Could Be

Indiana University and Purdue University announced in August 2022 that IUPUI would split into Indiana University Indianapolis (IUI) and an extension of Purdue’s West Lafayette campus. While the excitement and nervousness of the transition has slowed as the school year has progressed, the editorial board thought it worthwhile to discuss our predictions for what IUI could look like in the future.  Disclaimer: we are not a part of the transition board and our predictions are not definitive. This article is a piece of speculative fiction that visualizes some concepts that we believe may have the potential to become a reality at IUI in the future.

IUPUI in search of mascot for IU Indianapolis

January 18 was the Sports Management Club's (SMC) second annual "Show and See with SMC" talent show with Jagathon: IUPUI's Sports Marathon. The event raised over a record setting $150 and featured various acts including karaoke, dance performances, stand-up comedy and solving a Rubik's cube. “The intention from the beginning was to partner with Jagathon and find a way to raise as much money as we could, and have many acts come in with different people to get eyes on our club, and to just help out,” said one member of the SMC.

Genesis Magazine begins return to normalcy

Last spring, genesis Magazine celebrated their 50th anniversary. They celebrated their latest release party on Wednesday. Sarah Layden, the faculty advisor of genesis since 2016, expressed that the magazine has seen a lot of fluctuations in the quantity and types of content submitted to the magazine due to the COVID-19 pandemic. “I think that’s reflected nicely in this fall 2022 cover, because you’ve got this illustration of somebody on their phone, presumably getting all these updates that are reflected behind them, and it’s about masks and Covid and all these other things just looming," said Layden.

OPINION: IUSM Must Reverse Early Decision Policy Changes

The IU School of Medicine (IUSM) recently altered their early admissions policy. As of last spring, "placement at a specific location is not guaranteed." High-performing early applicants are now forced to use essentially the same ranking system that regular applicants use. The decision might push students to not pursue early admissions, making them more likely to go to out-of-state schools.

Student Life

The Struggle to Find Childcare at IUPUI

Being a parent is a difficult task. Balancing an academic workload on top of that can make things even more challenging. 1,662 IUPUI students indicated on their FAFSA application that they had at least one dependent in 2020. Many struggle to find childcare. Many have suggested Indiana University should step in to provide childcare subsidies, but a cooperative childcare organization on campus might help where subsidies cannot.
