Lane will be part of the first Indiana State class to spend the first year assigned to University College, which features dedicated academic advisors. He also participated in a two-day New Student Orientation program and in Project Success, a week-long program to help participating students make a smooth transition to college life — both programs that were not offered during his grandmother’s student days.
Lane, who plans to major in criminology and criminal justice, and more than 12,000 other Indiana State students, started classes on Tuesday.
He has Kenworthy’s best wishes for finding the same happiness and success she found at Indiana State five decades ago, but he also has an admonition from Grandma.
“I told Lane, ‘The thing of it is that I graduated, so you’d better graduate, too,’” she said.
