"IPFW Got Sole" This April 
Blue Tennis Shoe
IPFW Ambassadons want to demonstrate how much "sole" the university has. Beginning with a kickoff Monday and Tuesday, April 5 and 6, they will sponsor "IPFW Got Sole" to collect new shoes to donate to the Fort Wayne Rescue Mission and Charis House. Donation tables will be located in the lower level of Kettler Hall and in the Walb Student Union lobby near the stairwell.
After the kickoff, the shoe drive will continue through April 30, with drop-off barrels located throughout the campus.

K-5 Masterpieces on Display at Helmke
FAME Exhibition at Helmke
FAME exhibition
Earlier this month, elementary students created "masterpieces" as part of the Foundation for Art and Music in Education (FAME) Fusion of Concert Colors contest. The works of art are now on display on the second floor of the Walter E. Helmke Library. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
Student Workers Rock! 
All IPFW departments are encouraged to recognize and show appreciation for student workers during the week of April 12-16. There are 500-plus students who devote many hours each week making significant contributions to our campus community! Here are a few ideas:
  • Take them out for a meal;
  • Send a card or e-card;
  • Wear a "Student Workers Rock" button (contact Career Services for buttons at 481-0689);
  • Have a departmental ice cream social, party, or luncheon;
  • Nominate them for the National Student Employee of the Year Award (deadline is April 5);
  • Buy them IPFW gear from the bookstore;
  • Give a flower, balloon, candy, or a gift certificate to a local restaurant;
  • Make a banner and hang it in your office that reads "Thank You, Student Employees" or "Our Student Employees Rock!"
