November 11, 2004, Greencastle, Ind. - Video Link [Download Video: "Beginning of Story" - 2983kb] "Indiana Asbury University was founded in 1837 but the name was changed some 40 years later to DePauw University," began a report that aired nationally on the Golf Channel. "The first president of the school in Greencastle, Indiana -- Matthew Simpson -- was a good friend of Abraham Lincoln. That's your history lesson on one of the finest liberal arts universities in the nation," said the program's host, Steve Sands, in introducing an approximately four minute feature that was taped on campus and includes a "guided tour" by two DePauw student-athletes.

The segment, which aired a total of three times last night and this morning, golf channel logo.jpgfeatures senior golfers Lindsay Amore and Jason Schwerdt at various sites on campus "introducing" the audience to the University and the Tiger golf program. A number of familiar scenes to the DePauw family are displayed, including East College, Marvin's, the Percy Lavon Julian Science and Mathematics Center, and the new DePauw Nature Park.
