Foundation Prize Raffle

For the full list of items included in the raffle, see below.

1. The GoPro HERO5 Session 10MP

In the Box: GoPro HERO5 Session, Standard Frame, Mounting Buckle, Curved Adhesive Mount, Flat Adhesive Mount, USB Cable
The GoPro HERO5 Session action camera more than makes up for it in functionality and features. Retaining the familiar ice-cube-sized form factor of the previous generation HERO Session, the HERO5 Session ups the ante in a major way. UHD 4K video at 30fps and 1080p video at 90fps in addition to 10MP photos at bursts of up to 30fps are all packed inside the diminutive rectangular prism of a camera. The camera body itself is waterproof to depths of 33' and is shock-resistant, so even without a protective housing, the HERO5 Session can take a licking.While more functionality has been integrated, the HERO5 Session is still easy to use. 
The one-button interface, featured on the previous generation HERO Session, will be instantly familiar for accessing menu functions. If the camera is off, pressing the record button will power it on and immediately start recording. Hands-free control is also possible using the built-in Voice Control feature or the free mobile app. Speaking simple voice commands can control various functions inside the camera, including start/stop video recording, photo burst, and more.

Kit Includes:

• GoPro HERO5 Session 
• SanDisk 32GB Ultra Memory Card 
• Medium Hard Case
• Chest Strap
• Head Strap
• Adjustable Handle Bar
• Extendable Monopod 
• J-Hook Buckle Mount 
• Tripod Mount 
• Wrist Strap Band

Memory Paths

In order to honor alumni and friends of the college, Indian Hills has created Memory Paths on both the Ottumwa and Centerville campuses. The Ottumwa Campus Memory Path is located around the pond behind the Hellyer Student Life Center, while the Centerville Campus Memory Path is near the recently renovated “Barn” or Student Union.

For a donation of $50, $100, or $150, a stone will be engraved with your name or the name of a loved one. The stone will be incorporated into a walkway on the campus of your choice. New stones will be installed twice each year, once in April, prior to graduation ceremonies, and once in September, prior to Homecoming. All proceeds from the Memory Path Project will provide scholarships for Indian Hills students through the IHCC Foundation.
