Indiana State University will kick off its "March On!" fall tour with stops in southwestern Indiana later this month.
Indiana State President Dan Bradley will lead a delegation of university and ISU Foundation representatives on a five-city tour of the state. The tour will celebrate the university's recent increases in enrollment, athletic successes and the progress of the foundation's $85 million fundraising campaign, which is scheduled to conclude in December.
It will also provide prospective students and parents with an opportunity to meet with admissions counselors to learn more about programs available at Indiana State and the college admission process.
The tour will visit Jasper Oct. 19 and Evansville Oct. 20.
In Jasper, Richard Toomey, assistant vice president for enrollment management, will have lunch with Jasper High School teachers and administrators and a 6 p.m. reception at the Kimball showroom will feature entertainment by ISU music major Jeffrey Hampton on the piano.
In Evansville, President Bradley will appear on WGBF AM's "Live with Les Shively" at 8 a.m. and will later meet with University of Evansville President Thomas Kazee. Brad Balch, dean of the Bayh College of Education at Indiana State, and Brent Beeler, chairman of the ISU Foundation's board of directors, will meet with David Smith, superintendent of the Evansville-Vanderburgh School Corporation. Bradley and University of Southern Indiana President Linda Bennett will speak at a luncheon meeting of the Chamber of Commerce of Southwest Indiana. A 6 p.m. reception is scheduled at Old National Bank downtown.
Alumni, prospective students and parents are especially encouraged to attend the free receptions.
Additional stops on the "March On!" tour are scheduled for Nov. 14 in Columbus, Nov. 15 in Bloomington and Dec. 4 in Crown Point. More information is available by contacting the ISU Alumni Association at 800-258-6478 or email@example.com.
