The foundation you need to succeed

Emily West
Students will soon see officers patrolling the campus on Trek police mountain bikes, wearing police uniforms specifically designed for bicycling. The bike patrols are part of Chief Jerry Williams’ plans to increase campus safety and create positive relationships with the campus community.
Craig Simon
Freshman Craig Simon surprisingly found that an impromptu game of pingpong with the deputy mayor of Dongyang, China, Kokomo’s sister city, would score him the opportunity of a lifetime as the first-ever traveling diplomat for Indiana University Kokomo and a local school corporation.
The Winburns
In July, the Indiana University Kokomo freshman and her sister Lesly, a junior, returned to the orphanage that was their home for seven years, this time as missionaries. They led a group from Kokomo’s Taylor High School to build a house for the children, and to take them bowling. Their younger brother Allan also was part of the group.
Babb & Glenn
Senior psychology majors Alexius Babb and Alexandra Glenn were among those students honored for their research projects at the 19th annual Indiana University Undergraduate Research Conference, which included nearly 80 projects by students from all eight IU campuses.

Enactus members help rebuild Kokomo skate park

The student organization, mostly comprised of business students, consulted with Anthony Tucker, the new owner of DK’s Mainstreet Skatepark, helping him update it before its recent grand reopening.
