IUS Horizon December 2, 2012
Laura Caruso, communication senior, has not had a typical college experience. She has not attended college for four straight years or been ready to graduate, until now. However, she said this long, winding journey through school was not due to a lack of motivation, but rather to a plan for the future Caruso said she first attended IU Southeast straight out of high school in 2005, took a break after 2008 to put her husband, Michael, through classes at Purdue University and returned in 2011. “It’s a big deal to me that I actually got myself back here, and I’m balancing — sometimes horribly — making sure my husband has food and getting good grades,” she said.

IUS Horizon October 28, 2012
It is unethical to force Americans to choose between their religions and their choices of presidential candidates. Issues such as gay marriage, abortion, birth control and other religious matters have no place in politics. Many extremist Republican and Democratic advocates are playing the religious card in order to persuade citizens to vote for a particular candidate. I have heard everything from ‘Romney practices polygamy’ to ‘vote for Obama and you are going to burn in hell.’
