    Campus Kudos

    Kudos to MBA students Tony Davis, Patrick Hibbeler and Nathen Kontny for tying for second place in the national Stukent [sic] digital marketing simulation for 2014-2015. Their team, All About Tablets, generated an impressive $908,978 in simulated profits. The students participated in the simulation as part of Assistant Professor Victor Barger's course on digital marketing.


    Kudos to Matthew Viney, economics and German major, who won a prestigious 10-month scholarship in the amount of $7,500 from the German Academic Exchange Service to study at the Goethe Universität in Frankfurt during the 2015-16 academic year.

    Kudos to Katherine Yetter, a communication sciences and disorders major, who was selected as Outstanding Freshman of the Year by the Office of First Year Experience.


    Kudos to Teresa Lind, lecturer of art and design, whose work appears in "Queens of Grit," an exhibit of nearly life-sized figurative cast metal and mixed media pieces depicting capable, feminine women representing gritty, traditionally male-dominated vocations, at the Indianapolis Art Center through Sept. 12.
