November 16, 2010 — Duration: 5:21
[A. Biehle] Hi, Iím Allison Biehle, your host for the November 10th edition of IUPUIís The Spot.
An event, which began in their classrooms, is now a campus-wide event. Communication studies graduate students, Rachel Davidson and Emily Deering, alongside Dr. Dobris have planned the IUPUI Celebration of Hoosier Women. Join author, Michael Maurer and the co-creator of the popular Vera Bradley bags, Patricia Miller at this event on Monday, November 22nd from 10:30 to 11:45 a.m. in the Campus Center, room 409.
We see thousands of students a day going to and from classes, but what do IUPUI students do after hours.
[C. Cawthon]Weíre supposed to get here between 7 and 7:15. We run airspeed first thing in the morning, which is an external hard drive that backs up our shows, so that we can keep a record of them. Primarily, we do guest relations first thing in the morning. We do a little bit of setting up the studio, and then like I said, greeting the guests and waiting for the show to start.
During Indy Style, we assist the guests coming in and out of sets. We also help, as needed, with things in the sound booth, contests, things of that nature. And then, after Indy Style, what weíre responsible for doing is coming in, cleaning up the set, and then we go back to the office and update our social networking sites.
Typically, the rest of the day is kind of at our discretion depending on the events we have going on. We usually will set up for those events, and/or get gift bags, give-away materials ready, or weíll do just basic office tasks: working on projects, researching ideas, and things of that nature.
I think everything Iíve learned has in some way helped shape my skills set that Iíll take with me in the future. Iíve learned a lot about time management and organizational skills, but Iíve also learned a great deal about teamwork, and how many people it actually takes to make something happen in the workforce, so itís been a huge learning experience because I come from college, where itís individual work all the way, so this has been a great learning experience and very eye-opening.
[A. Biehle] SAPB is at it again! First, head over to fountain square for a free night of duckpin bowling on Thursday, November 18th from 7 to 10 p.m. Then, on Tuesday, December 7th, itís your next 6:06 series atÖ you guessed it, 6:06 pm with a featured slam poet to be announced on the SAPB homepage.
Enjoy the popular meals served at the Chancellorís Restaurant and Our Den Sports Bar at home by purchasing Chef Dan Nobleís ďeat localĒ cookbook. To tell you more about this fantastic idea is the director of sales and marketing at the University Place Conference Center and Hotel, Lisa Howe.
[L. Howe]We started looking at getting into the restaurants and creating a menu that used sustainable products, and thatís what launched our ďeat localĒ menu. It was very popular, and we used produce that came from the local food shed, and it celebrated local farmers, and our Chef changed it out each week, and everyone started asking us for the recipes.
And so, by the time it ended a lot of people wanted it to continue, but when the produced stopped, obviously, you canít have the same menus, he developed some of his recipes, and we decided to put it in a cookbook and then donate a portion of the proceeds to the IUPUI community garden. So, now itís not only about sustainability in the products that we use for the environment, itís sustaining commerce and keeping it here within the University.
The menus were designed for the faculty and staff, and it also was in keeping with IUPUIís Make an Impact, and if you want to make an impact, you support your local community as well, and anything that supports the environment is also very responsible.
In addition to being able to purchase the ďeat localĒ cookbook through Artisans Boutique and Coffee located here in University Place, you can purchase this online by going to our website at www.universityplace.iupui.edu.
[A. Biehle] Itís time for the 77th IUPUI Speech Night Competition. Support your peers, as finalists from Speech Night preliminaries deliver persuasive speeches prepared in their Comm-R 110 courses. The competition will take place on Monday, December 6 at 7 p.m. Location is yet to be announced. The event draws a huge crowd every semester, so be sure to arrive early for a seat.
Itís basketball season!

Both games will take place in the Jungle. Iíll be there; will you? Good luck, and go Jags! Track their progress at iupuijags.com.
