When the value of the merchandise shall be $100 or
more, any person who shall commit the offense of
retail theft, whether the same shall be a first or subse-
quent offense, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor of the
first degree. Maximum penalties: $10,000 and/or five
years in jail.

In all cases involving conviction of retail theft, the
defendant is required by law to be fingerprinted, and
those fingerprints are subsequently turned over to the
Pennsylvania State Police.

D. Types of Prosecution

Violations of laws and ordinances are prosecuted
under three classifications:

Summary Offenses

Nearly all borough ordinances come under the Sum-
mary Offense Classification. Many can be cleared up
within forty-eight hours by paying a fine and costs at
the Municipal Building. Most moving vehicle viola-
tions and others not cleared in the forty-eight hour
period are processed by a magistrate. State law re-
quires the magistrate to add costs to the penalty and
determines the amount of the costs to be added.

Examples of summary offenses are most types of
disorderly conduct, violations of the Motor Vehicle
Code, and first offenses of shoplifting.


The State Crimes Code provides for three degrees of
misdemeanors. The degree determines the maximum
sentence and fine which may be imposed upon convic-
tion and, therefore, the seriousness of the crime. A
defendant charged with a misdemeanor is afforded
the same procedural safeguards as a defendant
charged with a felony. The case will be heard by a
magistrate at a preliminary hearing. If a prima facie
case is shown by the commonwealth, then it will be
sent to trial and will then be heard by a judge either
with or without a jury at the option of the defendant.


Examples are driving under the influence of alcohol,
driving during suspension of operator's license, and
furnishing liquor to a minor.


Cases involving crimes of the most serious nature are
denoted as felonies. There are three grades of felonies
in Pennsylvania. The degree determines the maximum
sentence and fine which may be imposed upon convic-
tion. A defendant charged with a felony will have his/
her case heard by a magistrate at a preliminary
hearing. If a prima facie case is shown by the com-
monwealth, then the case is sent to trial and will be
heard by a judge either with or without a jury at the
option of the defendant.

Examples are murder, rape, arson, burglary, theft,
and forgery.

Regulations on Telephone and Mail Service

Students found guilty of the following infractions will
be subject to disciplinary action. Federal and State
Law provide that:

Anyone with intent to defraud who gives information
to the operator or agent of any telephone company, so
that the charge thereof is made to the account of an-
other without authorization, shall be liable to fine or
imprisonment or both. Further, federal and state law
prohibit the providing of false information with the
intent to defraud the telephone company. This would

also apply to the use of a "phone card" by other than
the authorized party. This offense if punishable by
fine and/or imprisonment.

Students are warned that it is illegal to use fictitious
names in order to receive articles through the United
States mail. Such actions are treated as theft.

Automobile and Parking

A. Resident students are not permitted to bring automo-
biles or motorbikes to the campus with the exception
of the following provisions:

1. Medical reasons

2. Work assignments requiring an automobile

3. Student teaching

B. A resident decal for your vehicle may be obtained upon
written application to the Campus Police Office, first
floor, John Sutton Hall.

C. Parking violators will have vehicles ticketed and a fine
of five dollars assessed. A written request for a review
of the ticket should be sent to the Campus Police
within five days. If the fine is not paid, a traffic cita-
tion will be filed with the magistrate's court.

D. A copy of university parking regulations can be ob-
tained from the Campus Police Office.


lUP and the Community
I UP special Events

Alumni Weekend

Alumni Weekend is scheduled annually in June. All
alumni are invited to take part in the weekend. Special
reunion events for the twenty-fifth, thirtieth, thirty-fifth,
fortieth, forty-fifth, and fiftieth-year classes, as well as
occasionally for other class years, are planned. Class re-
unions, an awards dinner, seminars, alumni dinner dance,
and family activities are all part of Alumni Weekend.
Alumni who have made outstanding records in terms of
achievement are recognized.

Artist Series

The Office of Student Activities and Organizations
presents a series of major, internationally renowned, cul-
tural programs throughout the year in the areas of music,
dance, and theater. Programs are selected by a committee
made up of students and faculty, while the production of
the event itself is done by the students. The series is subsi-
dized by the Student Cooperative Association.


A formal, universitywide commencement ceremony is held
once a year in May. Students who have graduated the pre-
ceding August and December, as well as current May grad-
uates, are eligible to participate. The main ceremony, held
in George P. Miller Stadium, is followed by separate de-
partmental ceremonies.


Homecoming draws more people to campus than any
other annual event. Students, alumni, and area residents
gather for the parade through town, the carnival on cam-
pus, and the football game at Miller Stadium. Numerous
units are included in the parade, for which campus organi-
zations design and construct floats in keeping with the
year's theme. The carnival, sponsored by the lUP Alumni

Affairs Office and the Alumni Association, features mu-
sic, food, and games and provides a convenient meeting
place for Homecoming visitors. A traditional conclusion
of the weekend is an alumni dinner dance at the Indiana
Country Club, to which the parents of students, as well as
alumni, are invited.

Open Mouse

I ills day provides an excellent opportunity for prospective
students, parents, visitors to the area, community resi-
dents, guests and friends of the university, and alumni to
visit lUP and seek out information on the university and
its programs. An admission hour, campus tour, open
house in a residence hall, veterans outreach program, and
information sessions on campus organizations are con-
ducted. Other events include a football game in Miller
Stadium and a special luncheon.

Parents' Day

Each fall semester, a Saturday is designated as lUP Par-
ents' Day. Parents' Day allows parents and friends of stu-
dents an opportunity to see and become acquainted with
the lUP campus. Activities presented include tours, dis-
cussions, a football game, etc. Entertainment is provided
in the evening. Parents are invited to meet faculty and
administrators at discussions held by the various schools.
Parents' Day provides a good opportunity to acquaint
parents with the university.


Theater-by-the-Grove, the production unit of the Depart-
ment of Theater, annually presents three programs of the-
atrical productions, performed in its fully renovated
theater facility in Waller Hall. These productions are sup-
ported in part by the Student Cooperative Association.
The Mainstage season consists of two major productions
in the fall semester and two in the spring, performed on
the flexible stage of Waller Theater. Over the course of
four years, these productions will include modern and
classic plays, comedies, and dramas, as well as musical
plays produced in collaboration with the Department of
Music. Selected Mainstage productions participate in the
American College Theater Festival, sponsored by the Ken-
nedy Center in Washington, D.C. Over the years, many
students and faculty members have won awards for excel-
lence for their work in festival productions. The other two
theater seasons include the following: the Acorn Project,
which is performed during the fall and spring semesters in
the Studio Theater of Waller Hall and consists of student
and faculty projects; and Theater-by-the-Grove's Summer
Theater, a professional theater operating in conjunction
with URTA (University Resident Theater Association)
under a special arrangement with Actor's Equity Associa-
tion, the union for professional actors. For more informa-
tion, contact the theater department at 357-2965.
