Fish Fry















The Fish Fry is the unofficial homecoming of Indiana agriculture,” said Danica Kirkpatrick, Executive Director of the Ag Alumni Association. “Not only do we have a fun, educational program, but our guests tell us each year how much they enjoy the networking and exhibit area. While you can’t help but notice the obvious Purdue Pride at the Fish Fry, you don’t have to be an alumnus to attend.”

Early Childhood Development Centers

The University of Notre Dame and St. Mary’s plan construction next year on a new on-site facility to provide child care for faculty, staff and students with children between the ages of 6 weeks and 3 years old.  Growing out of the recommendations of a faculty and staff committee charged with looking at child care assistance opportunities, the new facility will open in summer 2025 and be operated by KinderCare, the nation’s largest child care and early education provider.

The center will be located on the north edge of campus near White Field, adjacent to Beichner Hall and The Landings at Notre Dame apartments.

The Early Childhood Development Centers at Notre Dame and Saint Mary’s College will continue to offer early childhood programs for children age 2 through kindergarten and will work in collaboration with KinderCare.

“We welcome KinderCare to the Notre Dame campus. Infant care is greatly needed in our community, and we are pleased that the University continues to support families’ needs for quality early childhood care and education. We look forward to continuing our mission to provide the community with high-quality accredited preschool and kindergarten programs at our two ECDC campus sites,”

— Kari Alford, Executive Director.

The De-Population Bomb

Mechanical Clock from 1895 Still Ticking

Located in the Mechanical Engineering Building this clock has been keeping time for over 120 years and its ticking can be heard throughout the building. The clock was built by the Seth Thomas Clock Company and was installed in 1904.

The clock’s mechanism is powered by weights that are wound up manually twice a week. It has a pendulum that swings back and forth, keeping time with remarkable accuracy. The clock is also equipped with a chime that rings every quarter hour, as well as a striking mechanism that sounds the hours.

Over the years, the clock has undergone several renovations and restorations to keep it in good working order. In 2009, the clock was fitted with an electric motor to assist in winding the weights, but it still operates primarily through mechanical means.

Ball State University was founded in 1918 and was originally named the Eastern Indiana Normal School and primarily a teacher’s college. The university was renamed Ball State University in 1965, in honor of the five Ball brothers, who began by manufacturing and selling wooden jacketed tin cans. In 1884, the company introduced the Ball Improved Mason Jar, which became a popular way to preserve food.

The university is home to the Center for Middletown Studies, which conducts research on the social and cultural dynamics of small-town America.

Case Study: Center Grove Community School Corporation Security

Center Grove Schools enters the 2022/2023 school year with a new high-tech safety partner — Centegix CrisisAlert — purchased in part with school safety grant money that pairs with their Emergency Operations Center that opened in January 2022.  The CrisisAlert program  puts security at the fingertips of all teachers and staff.

Both systems address what the district learned it had to work on from a school safety assessment back in 2018 – live monitoring and faster response times in an emergency.   Seven-hundred cameras will scan every school in real-time from the district’s Emergency Operations Center. — More
