Newbauer and Trahin Named IU Scholar-Athletes of the Month for November
Dec. 28, 2011
Newbauer, a native of Ft. Wayne, Ind., is an Exercise Science major and has already excelled in difficult course work including Chemistry, Biochemistry, Finite Mathematics and Calculus. Facing her intense five credit hour Anatomy course, while preparing for and starting basketball season was going to be no easy feat, but she met the challenge head on. When she experienced a setback on her first exam, Newbauer employed new time management techniques to her busy schedule and took on several extra credit opportunities to secure an A going into the final.
"The first words that come to mind when thinking about Andrea are role model," said Laura Asbury, IU Academic Advisor. "She is consistent, determined, and faces challenges in mature and thoughtful ways. Throughout the academic and athletic challenges Andrea faces, she is a dependable young woman who always looks ahead and prepares for the next victory. As she continues on this successful path, she will remain a role model for all those around her."
Trahin, also a Ft. Wayne, Ind., native, had an up and down first two years academically at IU, but has experienced a tremendous fall semester. Despite taking on a difficult course load, his organizational skills and strong work ethic have allowed him to see success in the classroom from start to finish this semester.
"I have no doubt that with Sam's new approach to his academics that his results from the fall semester will become the norm for him going forward," said Mike Greene, IU Academic Advisor.
