The Anderson University Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) program is off to a great start for the 2012-2013 academic year. The students are working on the projects that have been ongoing for the past several years in addition to several new projects. Ongoing projects include Flying to Financial Freedom, where budgeting and credit management are worked on; and Cheat Your Neighbor, Cheat Yourself, which focuses on teaching the importance of ethical behavior to elementary students.
The Economic Club of Indiana has the mission of providing a public forum for the discussion of economic issues within the state. The most prominent method of so doing is by means of a luncheon they host approximately once per month at the Indianapolis Convention Center with a guest speaker addressing political, economic, or social matters. The cost of attending a luncheon is $30 for members and $35 for nonmembers. The number of members in the organization is low as there is no great benefit to the membership — which costs $60 — outside of the discounted luncheon tickets.
The International Business Institute (IBI) is a program that is integrated with the global business major. Anderson University students Liz Cox and Ian Illig were two of 40 students who, through the IBI, had the opportunity to travel this summer to more than 13 countries, while learning about cultures and business.
When I was a teenager, I had a Super 8mm movie camera in the days before the rise of videotape. I would visualize incredibly complex scenes to film — often involving peril within HO scale layouts — and try to capture them. As soon as I started filming, I would realize the immensity of the task involved in bringing what I had envisioned to celluloid and I would start taking shortcuts: lighting is for losers; don’t worry about the dog walking past; backdrops serve no purpose.
