Angel Fund Auction Helps Students Handle Emergency Expenses
Blue angelThe Angel Fund is administered through the Center for Women and Returning Adults to help students weather short-term financial crises that threaten their ability to complete their studies. The only grant requirements are that students must be in good standing and have unmet financial aid need. Demands on the Angel Fund have been intense, and the fund is not self-perpetuating; it depends solely on the generosity of faculty, staff, alumni, and others to sustain it.
The third annual online auction will go live Monday, December 1, and continue through December 15. Nearly 100 auction items have been donated, including gift baskets, event tickets, gift certificates, and a Fender electric guitar donated by Sweetwater. Place your bids beginning December 1

IPFW Cheerleaders
IPFW cheerleaders strike a pose before the men's basketball game in the Memorial Coliseum last Monday. The Dons dominated the Jacksonville Dolphins 89--71, a victory made even sweeter by the fact that the Dolphins are coached by former IPFW men's basketball coach Tony Jasick.
