Gnaw On Some Beaver History

 

Lindsey Awarded Medal of Honor

On August 9, 1944, Darrell Lindsey, a former BV student, was killed in action while “le[ading] a formation of 30 B-26 medium bombers on a hazardous mission… to destroy the… L'Isle railroad bridge over the Seine in occupied France….” During the mission his bomber was severely damaged by enemy antiaircraft fire. This damage resulted in a “fire streaming from his aircraft's right engine[,] and the right wing [was] enveloped in flame….” Knowing that he could not save the plane, “[h]e ordered his crew to parachute from the aircraft….” This order almost saved everyone. But “after all had escaped[,] the fuel tank exploded with Lindsey still on board and the plane went into a deep dive and exploded as it crashed.” For the bravery shown in continuing the mission, and staying on a burning airplane so that others could live, Lindsey was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor a year later.

Gnaw On This Bit of Beaver History: BV at the Olympics

It is safe to assume that during the 2016 Olympics, most Americans have overlooked the important roles that individuals such as judges, team escorts, and referees perform. This is a shame because these individuals have an important role in making sure the Olympics are both fair and fun to watch. A good example of this concerns Al Baxter, who was BV’s wrestling coach during the 1980s. While serving as an escort during the 1984 Olympics, he escorted wrestlers (who represented over fifty nations) to their events. He did this for ten days, “from 9:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.” He also had another important role. When not serving “as an escort, he helped with the computerized weigh-ins.” By performing these tasks, Baxter ensured that the athletes arrived at the right time and location, and that the wrestlers were in their correct weight classes. Without individuals like Al Baxter, the Olympics would not be the same.

Gnaw on some Beaver history: What classes to take

School is about to start, and you might be thinking about the classes you signed up for. You are not alone. The thought about what classes you should take and avoid (or wish you could) was so important that The Tack took a poll in 2012. The newspaper rated the least favorite, the favorite, the easiest, the hardest, and the recommended ones. 2012 students recommend “General Psychology with Goodfriend, Written Communications 1, and a class with Lenzmeier” while the hardest were “Biochemistry, Business Law, and Financial Accounting.”

            Hopefully you have at least one fun class during Fall 2016!

The Learning House (THL) Launch Aug. 8

On Monday, August 8, BVU’s partnership with The Learning House (TLH) will officially launch. TLH is contracted with BV for the marketing, recruitment and retention of fully online students in a number of programs.

In the event you are in contact with a prospective student who desires to be a fully online student, please collect their name, phone, email address and desired program of study and send those details to: onlineadmissions@bvu.edu. Assure the individual that a BV representative will be in contact very, very soon.  

In the coming weeks, The Learning House will begin their marketing initiative on our behalf. As they enroll students, their student success efforts will be put into place. While they may help us enroll a nominal number of students for Term 1, we anticipate that the real impact of this partnership will not be felt fully until Term 3 and beyond.

A leadership team from BV, in conjunction with a number of offices and individuals, have been working closely with TLH for many weeks. If you have any questions about this, please contact any of the following individuals from that team: Jean Bral, Jim Salvucci, Laura Newhouse, Jill Rhea, Jennifer Felton, Mike Frantz.

Gnaw on some Beaver history: Tattoos

Tattoos seem normal today. However they were considered the “newest craze” at BV in 1994. The Tack had students show their tattoos and explain the story behind them. It didn’t matter whether it was on your arm, leg, hip, chest, or ankle. BV wanted to know your story. The Tack wrote another article besides the students’ tattoos article (“A Picture is Worth 1000 Needles”) called “They’re not just for criminals anymore.” This article explained the history of tattoos and how they are becoming safer.

Gnaw on some Beaver history: 4-1-4

Most of us are used to the three semester system. We have Fall term, J-Term, and Spring term. Most of us spend fall wondering what we’ll do during J-Term. Should we travel, get an internship, or take that fun class that’s offered? However, this three-term system isn’t even 50 years old! On July 3, 1970, Buena Vista announced that it was a part of the “4-1-4 academic year plan,” and it was “one of the approximately 200 colleges” to do this.

I don’t know about you, but I’m glad BV has the 4-1-4 year plan. J-Term trips are always exciting!

Gnaw on some Beaver history: Gopher's flag

On July 9, 1992, a member of the U.S. House of Representatives requested that a flag be flown over the U.S. Capitol, honoring the founding of Buena Vista College on July 9, 1891. BV was given the flag afterward. The member was Fred “Gopher” Grandy who represented the 6th District of Iowa. Grandy had appeared on the popular TV series, “The Love Boat.”

Gnaw on some Beaver history: student organizations

Organizations have been a huge part of BV. The senior gift of 2016 went to organizations. 1964 was packed full of groups that made BV special. Student Council, Student Senate, Swoop Hall Council, Men’s Dorm Council, Student Faculty Committees, MENC, Alpha Psi Omega, Pi Kappa Delta, Sigma Tau Delta, Lambda Sigma Tau, Delta Phi Beta, Beta Shots, Phi Alpha Pi, Delta Phi Rho, Gamma Sigma Phi, Kappa Tau Delta, Circle K, Celtic Cross, Student Christian Fellowship, Pemm Club, Lettermen’s Club, SISEA, Young Democrats, Young Republicans, The Tack, and The Log.

            We’ve added a lot of groups and lost others during our 125 years. Every club is important, whether it was in 1964 or 2016.
