About this item
“The Freshman Experience” is an educational film about what life is like at Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana for incoming freshman. Alfred Edyvean created the film as a senior project for his Independent Learning Program (ILP) (now known as Individualized Major Program - IMP) degree in “Educational Films.” The University Division paid for the creation of the film to show to new or prospective students about the IU campus as well as the resources available on campus.
The film documents a full year of activities at IU with voiceovers that give advice to new students. Besides shots of everyday life for students on campus in the 1970’s (including images of the campus’s changing seasons), the film also depicts specific events on campus like the registration processes, football games (including a half time performance by Bob Hope), basketball games (including a modern dance half time show), the little 500 and the mini 500 (women’s tricycle race). The film also depicts several iconic landmarks on campus, including Showalter Fountain, Residential hall, Sugar and Spice bakery, Wells Library, Indiana memorial Union and the clock tower.
