The HawkEar's final radio-news show of the spring season featured:

--- IUP gets "shmacked": A series of short videos posted on YouTube, including one purported to feature students at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, shows undergraduate college students behaving like, well, undergraduate college students. Local reaction has ranged from shock to shrugs. Crispin Havener discusses his reporting on the subject for The HawkEye online newspaper, where his story, with co-author James Zackal, is scheduled to be published.  Reporter: Sean Yoder.

--- IUP SGA elections raise questions -- again: On March 28-29, Indiana University of Pennsylvania's Student Government Association sponsored elections for its top officers. Preliminary figures for voter turnout indicated a substantial increase in voting participation, although the actual number of student voters remained small. What inspired IUP's usually apathetic student electorate?  Other questions are arising from the electoral tea leaves. Such as, why did the March 28 email signaling students to start voting look like spam? Sounds familiar: Such questions have surrounded SGA elections in years past. Fred Speaker discusses his reporting on the issue for The HawkEye online newspaper.  Reporter: Sean Yoder. 

--- Is PC-based IUP going Mac? Recent trends at Indiana University of Pennsylvania suggest that students and faculty are pushing the predominantly Microsoft-based campus toward Apple's operating systems and products. Case in point: the new Apple iPad3, a tablet dominating the market and creeping into classrooms and academic departments campuswide. Andrew Hesner discusses his reporting on the issue for The HawkEye online newspaper. Reporter: Sean Yoder.
