Text says “Business of Being a Hoosier”.
Faith Baker, Narrator: Hi everyone. My name is Faith Baker. I'm a senior here. I am majoring in informatics and International Studies. And I am from Indianapolis, Indiana.
Bailey Duff, Narrator: Hey everyone. My name is Bailey Duff. I am a recent graduate who studied Health Care Management and Policy from New Albany, Indiana.
Faith, Narrator: So we want to talk to you about this presentation, which is called the business of being a Hoosier. We know that students, they're going to need help and are most likely going to contact their support system, which is going to be you. This is what we want to share with you, the different types of resources here at IU for your students. That way, if they call needing help, you have all the information to help them and guide them in the right direction.
Text says “Business of Being a Hoosier. Supporting Your Student. Health and Wellness. Joining the Hoosier Family”.
Bailey, Narrator: During this presentation we will be highlighting three main topics. So the first one is going to be supporting your student. We want to ensure that you're able to successfully support your student when they call for help. We will also be talking about health and wellness, ensuring you that your student is able to maintain a good, healthy life on campus. And third, we'll be talking about joining the Hoosier family. Your student is joining us, but so are you. So we'd like to welcome you.
Text says “Your Student’s NSO Experience. Canvas Modules. Part 1: Beginning Your Hoosier Steps. Part 2: Business of Being a Hoosier. Part 3: Hoosier Experience. Academic Advising Appointment. Virtually meet with an academic advisor. Cream and Crimson Communities. Interact with IU Students”.
Faith, Narrator: >> So before we get started, we wanted to share with you a brief overview of what your student is going to go through as part of their New Student Orientation experience. That is going to be Canvas modules. Now Canvas modules are going to be split into three parts where they can favorite, continue, and come back to throughout the summer. Part one is going to be beginning your Hoosier steps. Now, this is going to focus on preparing your students for their academic advising appointment and course registration, and explains important tasks that they need to complete. Part two is going to be the Business of Being a Hoosier. This reviews important campus resources that your student needs to be successful, from transportation, to getting involved. Part 3 is going to be the Hoosier Experience. This prepares your students for the fall semester and beyond, exploring aspects of campus and the academic major that they can utilize in building their future. Also during their NSO experience, there's going to be an academic advising appointment, which is going to be a virtual meeting with their academic advisor in real time, when they can register for their classes and get any of their questions answered. As well as that there's going to be cream and crimson communities. This is going to be a way for your students to interact with incoming IU students where they can build that friendship and community already before classes start.
Text says “NSO Parent and Family Resources. Family Sessions. Videos about different aspects of Campus and Campus Life. Sample Student FYE Checklist. NSO Resource Center. 5 different categories, over 70 total resources. Way to start finding resources.”
Bailey, Narrator: >> We also want to familiarize you with the NSO parent and family resources. On the NSO website, you will be able to navigate two other pages that will help you through new student orientation. One of those will be the family sessions page. And this will include videos about different aspects of campus and campus life. We want to make sure that these videos are available to you, that way you can go back and review anything that you like or need more information on. >> This will also include a sample student FYE checklist. >> Your student will have a similar check list to complete. And this will give you a look into the tasks that your student will need to complete throughout NSO to be prepared for the fall. >> We'll also have the NSO Resource Center. This will have five different categories and 70 total resources on there for you to start finding ways and resources to help your student.
Text says “Shifting Roles”
Faith, Narrator: So next thing we're going to talk about is supporting your student, and with that sending your student to college is going to be a huge transition for everyone, yourself included. I know for me personally, going into college was a huge shift in roles for me and my mom, who was always the one who pretty much would make those decisions for me and be able to provide that huge amount of guidance and steered me into the right direction. But when it came to college, she made it very clear that I was going to have to take charge of my own future. She took more of an advisory role instead of making the decision. Now we understand that everybody is totally different and that their stories are going to be different. This is one of the many ways that roles can shift as your student goes to college.
Text says “One.IU. Purpose. One Stop Shop for all things IU. Navigate Campus Websites. Way to Start Finding Resources”. Image shows web home page of one.iu.edu.
Faith, Narrator: So we're going to talk about One.IU.edu. Now One.IU.edu is going to become one of your students’ favorite websites, because it is a one-stop shop for everything IU. We like to call it the Google of IU. One.IU provides your student a centralized location to help navigate various IU resources. And it is a great starting place to find any university affiliated website, you can always start at One.IU.
Text says “Academics- Resources. Academic Support Centers. 1 per Residential Neighborhood. English and Math Support. Writing Tutorial Services. Herman B Wells Library. Student Academic Center. Study Techniques and Peer Mentoring. Peer Coaching/Tutoring. Campus and Department Wide.” Image shows web homepage of University Division Academic Advising.
Bailey, Narrator: We hope your student chose IU for the academics. And we want to make sure that they're successful in those. So we want to provide you with different resources that your student will be able to use. The Academic Support Centers here on campus are located in every residential neighborhood. They are located in Briscoe, Teter, and Forest. Their main goal is to help with English and math support. I find these to be really helpful, it was actually my favorite resource that I used because I was able to go there for my finite class when I had homework. And I could just sit there and do my homework even if I didn't originally have any questions. And it was helpful when a question came about and I didn't have to travel down there. I was already there and I was ensuring that I was completing my work. We also have the Writing Tutorial Services, which is located in the Herman B Wells Library, and this is a service that helps with writing papers. They will not write your student's paper for them, but they will help along the way with guidance and outlines and just ways to develop a successful paper. We also have the Student Academic Center and peer coaching and tutoring. I highly suggest that your student checks out all of these resources because they are really helpful and being successful in academics.
Text says “Canvas. Dashboard. Announcements. What If Grades. People.” Image shows an example of a Canvas Dashboard with multiple courses.
Bailey, Narrator: In addition to academic resources, canvas is going to be the main source for your students’ classes. So canvas does provide a dashboard that pulls up all the classes that your student is going to be enrolled in. And they're able to click on each class individually, see announcements, assignments, anything that the professor has given out that's going to be important for the course. In addition to this, they have a whole calendar on there that will build out their semester and show them when all their assignments are due. They can access syllabus and all different sorts of things to manage their assignments and their time. Two other resources that are on campus that are found to be really helpful for students is the what if grades and the people's tab. So what if you're able to get on there and you're able to type in grades for assignments that are coming up. Seeing what you would need to get to attain a certain grade, which is just going to be really helpful when you're managing study habits or anything along those lines. The people tab can be really helpful because it shows everyone in your class and you're able to form study groups through this, and you’re able to contact people if you have questions. And it just becomes another resource in addition to talking to your professors.
Text says “Advising at NSO. NSO Part 1 on Canvas. Tasks to Complete. NSO Advising Appointment. Advising. Enrollment.”
Bailey, Narrator: Advising at New Student Orientation is going to be where your student is able to set up all the classes that they'll see on Canvas. So in New Student Orientation Part One on the Canvas modules, your student will be going through and learning about all these different things with setting up classes and what they need to enroll in. There will be various tasks are out part1 that your student needs to complete in order to prepare for their NSO academic advising appointment. Your students NSO academic advising appointment is planned as a private meeting between them and a knowledgeable academic advisor. As it is important for them to learn to independently articulate their unique goals, needs, and life circumstances, and to make enrollment decisions to create a successful and productive academic experience. Please know that Indiana University respects the privacy of each student and our staff must comply with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, which protects the confidentiality of educational records. Therefore, if anyone other than your student will be present during their online academic advising meeting, your student will need to sign a release of information. They received details on how to do so in their NSO Canvas modules.
Text says, “Technology.” Image is a circle with text inside that says UITS.
Faith: Narrator So now we're going to talk about technology. Your student has access to various technology resources while they are here at IU Bloomington. University Information Technology Services is our main technology office here on campus that provides your students with these services. Now be sure to check out more videos on technology on the family sessions website. This is going to include tech support and different resources to support your students in their technological needs.
Text says “Technology. DUO. Required Two-Factor Authentication. Printing. Campus-Wide, Mobile Printing, 3D and Large-Scale. IUWare. Microsoft Office, Adobe Creative Suites. IT Tech Support. Live Chat, 24/7, 365 Days.” Image of four boxes. First is screenshot of DUO icon. Second is screenshot of Printing icon. Third is screenshot of IUWare icon. Fourth is screenshot of IT Tech Support icon.
Faith, Narrator: So we're going to talk about some specific resources that IU provides regarding in technology. One of that is IT tech support. This is access to a live chat which is 24/7, 365 days a year. Another is two-step login, which is accessed through Duo mobile, which is an app that your student will need to register to one of their devices which can be a laptop, smart phone, or any other technological device where duo mobile will allow them to send a push, a phone call, or a text message after they login with their username or their passphrase. This is a way to make sure that your students information is even more secure. Next, we're going to talk about printing. For printing, there is a printer at every academic building here at IU, and every residence hall, where your student will have access to them at various times. There's also going to be a printing allotment on their or your students card, which allows them to swipe and be able to print from any location that they choose. Now we're going to talk about PC versus Mac. Now both of these systems are supported here at IU. It really goes down to a variety of reasons, which can be an individual student's preference, what they feel the most comfortable using, but also check with your students specific school or college to see what programs they require their students to use. So be sure you check out your school's website to be able to find out which softwares and which systems does the school prefer for your student. Next is microsoft suite, which is software provided here at IU through IU Ware which can be found on One.IU.edu, where they can access the entire Microsoft Office Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and a variety of other programs. For me personally, I love the technology and I've been using the research this year for a very long time. I've been in contact with UITS a lot. They’ve helped me with repairing my laptop, they have also helped me from a variety of things, recommending certain products for me, or introducing me to certain classes so I can become more aware of certain resources here at IU. So be sure to check out UITS and also the other websites provided regarding technology.
Text says “Student ID. I-BUCKS Meal Plan. 20+ On-Campus dining locations. CrimsonCash Account. 100+ Locations Around Bloomington.” Image of an example students’ CrimsonCard. Two circular images of restaurants on and near IU’s campus.
Bailey, Narrator: One of the most important pieces of technology that you student will be using is their crimson card. This is going to be your students student ID. So this card allows them to print on campus, access different buildings, residence halls. It also allows them to access sporting events. So basketball and football have tickets that you must buy, but all other athletic events, your student will be able to use this card to get into. In addition to all of the great perks that the Crimson Card brings, it also holds two different accounts that we'll talk about. So the first account is going to be their I-bucks meal-plan. >> The meal plan is going to be the plan that you select with your student that they will be using on campus at dining halls and different campus cafes. So there are 20 plus locations that this can be used at on campus. And like I said, that includes campus cafes, dining hall, C-Stores, which are like convenience stores where you can go get various items in addition to food as well. So there are different levels of meal plans that your student can select. I know that I just selected the standard one and it was more than enough for me, and I was eating three meals a day, and then also using it at the C-Stores. So that's definitely something to consider on based off of how much your student maybe eating on campus. But not to worry, you can always add to the meal plan, and meal plan, the points will roll over one semester. The other account that is used is crimson cash. So crimson cash is more like a debit card, so you can upload money onto your students Crimson card account through Crimson cash, and they are able to use this throughout Bloomington as well. So there are 100 plus locations around Bloomington. A lot of them are on Kirkwood, which is just a great street in Bloomington for students to go explore, and they are able to use this money. So my parents would always just upload money through Crimson cash. And they knew that I was able to buy things that were essential, but also able to go out and enjoy some time off of campus.
Text says “Financial Resources. Student Central. Tuition Payments. Immunization Records. Student Records. MoneySmarts. Office of Scholarships.” Screenshot of Office of Scholarships Website. Image that says “Questions for Student Central? Ask. Studentcentral.indiana.edu. Financial Aid. Student Accounts. Student Records.”
Bailey, Narrator: We also know that college is a huge investment for your student. So student Central is there to help They navigate tuition payments, immunization records, and all student records. So anything among those topics that you have questions about, Student Central is definitely the place to go. They are their to assist your student, making sure that they are in financial good standing. So there will be a checklist that your student is able to complete. So definitely make sure that you're looking at that. We also have third-party access. This is where you're able to view your students information. In order for you to view the information, your student must grant third party access to you. Money Smarts is another great resource provided to your student where they're able to learn about different budgeting tools and what that looks like in their four years, as well as after college. Also, the Office of scholarships is located in student Central and they're very helpful in talking to students about what type of scholarships are out there that they can apply for. Definitely make sure that your student checks out the opposite scholarships throughout all their four years because there's constantly new things coming about and they can apply to different scholarships every year.
Text says “Career Services. Available in Every School on Campus. Interview and Resume Help, Internship and Job Search, Career Advisors, etc. Major/Career Guides.” Screenshot of the Career Development Center website.
Faith, Narrator: >> And now we're going to talk about career services. It is really important for your students to connect with career services early in their career here at IU Bloomington. For most students, this will start during welcome week, where they will have the chance to me with their career advisor. There are career services all across campus to help your student, no matter what their aspirations are. Now for the career resources, there are career services at every school, including the Career Development Center for University Division students who are not yet in their school. These services that all the career services offers include resume and interview help, internship, and job searching, as well as you can utilize the career advisors. Now their services at their center offer hundreds of job opportunities on campus. Now, for more information regarding career services, please check out the family sessions website where they will provide you a lot more information.
Text says “Transportation. Bus Systems. IU. Bloomington Transit. Parking Permits. Cars. Bikes. Third-Party. Private Shuttle. Zip Car.” Two images depicting two different bus systems. There is an IU Bus in the first image and a Bloomington Transit Bus in the second image.
Faith, Narrator: Now we're going to talk about transportation. Now while IU is a big campus, there are tons of ways to get from and to class very easily. Now thankfully, there are tons of ways for your students to get to class besides the most common form of transportation, which students use which is walking. Now to talk about this is the bus system. There are two main bus systems here, which is the IU and Bloomington transit, which is included in your cost of tuition. As long as students have their crimson card, they can ride the Bloomington transit, which takes them on campus and off campus for free. Also, there's the double map app. Now this app will allow students to track the IU buses and the Bloomington transit buses in real time, be able to see the different stops so they can see where they need to be. Now we're going to talk about parking. Now students don't need to bring their cars here. Most students do not use their cars to get to classes. Many of the students here walk or they take the bus. They can purchase parking permits through the parking office, through One.IU, where they offer the type of pass they can purchase, which varies on where the student lives. Now, students can also purchase a bike permit if they want to bring their bikes on campus. They are $10. You can access them through to parking office here at One.IU, which is going to last them their entire time here at IU Bloomington. There's also a various third-party transportation options, which is private shuttles which go to Chicago, South Bend, and the Indianapolis Airport. There's also a car service rentals, like Zip Car, which are available on campus. For me personally, as a senior, in all my soon to be four years here, I've never bought a car here on campus. I've always walked or I have always used the bus systems here. They've been extremely reliable for me and I've never had issues getting where I needed to be. So this is living proof that you actually don't need a car on campus, and that transportation here is very fast and very reliable. Now if you want any more information regarding transportation, going into more depth into the bus systems and other various options, please check out the family sessions websites regarding transportation.
Text says “Health and Wellness.”
Bailey, Narrator: Now that we know how to get around campus, we would like to provide you with resources that your students will be able to use to stay healthy.
Text says “IU Health Center. Health Portal Services. Pharmacy with Delivery. Women’s Clinic. Travel Clinic. Counseling and Psychological Services. Sexual Assault Crisis Services. Nutrition Consultation.” Circular image of the front of the IU Health Center. Square Image of a map showing the IU Health Center diagonally across the street from the Herman B Wells Library.
Bailey, Narrator: One main service here on campus is the IU Health Center. Something really important for your student to set up will be their health portal. Their help portal will allow them to make appointments and use the health center as a full functioning doctor's office as they would at home. In addition, the Health Center also has lots of resources that are available to your students. That way they can get all that they need right there at the health center. One service that I really used my first year was the pharmacy with delivery. So there was a time in my first year where I got sick and I was able to schedule an appointment through the health portal. And then whenever they prescribe me medicine, they were able to deliver it right through my residence hall, that way I didn't have to return when it was ready. They also have the women's clinic, the travel clinic, the counseling and psychological services, sexual assault crisis services, and the nutrition consultation. The counseling and psychological service do provide a couple of free visits per semester with your students fees, So make sure to check those out and what the guidelines are on that as well, and that your students take advantage of that if needed. There are also videos you can watch on the family sessions website for more information about the IU Health Center.
Text says “Safety at IU. IU Notify. IUPD. Night Owl Bus. Safety Escort: (812) 855-SAFE. IU Ride Mobile App. Protect IU.” Screenshot of the Protect IU website.
Bailey, Narrator: We also want to make sure that your student knows all the resources to staying safe on campus. IU notify will be super important for your student to sign up for, and you're also able to sign up for that. I know that my mom loved me that because she always got notified if something was going on as well. So I always got a call from IU notify and my mom when something was going on. So definitely make sure that you sign up for those notifications. In addition, we have the IUPD and the Bloomington police department that have jurisdiction on campus and are able to help students. We also have the Night Owl Bus and Safety Escort, and these are great transportation usage to use whenever your student is studying late at night on campus, or if they're out late at night for whatever reason, and don't feel comfortable walking back to their residence hall.
Text says “Joining the Hoosier Family.”
Faith, Narrator: >> Now I want to talk about my favorite part of the presentation which is joining the Hoosier family. A large part of joining the Hoosier family is joining us here on campus. Now, some of our favorite traditions at the beginning of the school year include move in, the freshmen induction ceremony, and welcome week, which we're going to get a little bit more into.
Text says “Move-In and Welcome Week. Move-In. Freshman Induction Ceremony. Welcome Week.” Three circular images of students and staff participating in Welcome Week, the Freshman Induction Ceremony, and Welcome Week.
Faith, Narrator: Now, move in regards into students moving in into the residence hall for the academic school year. Now, students are going to receive more information through RPS at a later date. The freshman induction ceremony is a ceremony during welcome week for both students and their families, which is similar to a reverse graduation where students are officially welcomed to campus. Welcome Week is a way for students to familiarize themselves with campus and resources prior to classes starting. Now, welcome week has a various range of events that are large and small. Some are going to be optional or mandatory, and some of these events are social or academic, please make sure that you pay attention to your emails, to your students emails, about more information regarding these events and more throughout the summer.
