When was the last time you nurtured your personal brand?
The Kelley School of Business hosted a panel yesterday at the Indiana Governor's Conference for Women to a packed room full of great questions. How often should you groom your social media profiles? What do you talk about, if you have limited experience in your career? How can you use your personal brand to inspire and lead a company or organization?
Who are you, and why does it matter?
If you missed yesterday's breakout session, you can download the interactive workbook and start answering these questions for yourself. The workbook is based on Me, Inc. curriculum created by the Kelley School's Graduate Career Services team, and includes tips on how to talk about yourself online, strengthen your LinkedIn profile, and define what makes you different.
More highlights from yesterday's session, after the jump.

It's a fresh new experience.
It's a hub for collaboration.
It's a result of great people.
It's like watching Kelley grow with you.

|Some 400-500 maple trees will be planted on campus in|
honor of Herman B Wells and his dedication to keeping
the IU campus beautiful.
Herman B Wells was a fierce protector of trees and green spaces at Indiana University. He was intent on preserving the woodland character of the campus, even during enormous growth and land acquisition in the 25 years he was president.
Wells' policy was that for every tree cut down, two trees must be replanted. No matter what.
So when the Hodge Hall Undergraduate Center began expanding two years ago to make room for the growing needs of the Kelley School of Business, and construction cleared about a dozen trees along 10th Street, our deans developed a plan for how we’d replant those trees.
One tree, a sugar maple dedicated to Wells himself, was a tough one to remove. But landscape experts collected seeds from the tree, and used those seeds to produce an estimated 400-500 smaller trees over the last two years.
We hope to plant 100 of these trees this fall in Dunn’s Woods. The remaining trees are anticipated to be planted on campus over the next few years after they have grown to a more substantial size.
Other trees that were removed for construction were preserved until the final phase. Last week, those trees were repurposed into sturdy, herringbone wood floors and baseboards in conference and presentation rooms that will overlook the Arboretum for years to come.
Classes begin Monday, and construction is on schedule. The Hodge Hall expansion and renovation project also includes updates to the original building, happening now through 2016.
Finishing touches are all that remain in the new Hodge Hall Undergraduate Center: Detailing, cleaning, and installing technology. All classrooms and both auditoriums are furnished, and the screens are being mounted in the conference rooms, classrooms and trading room—officially named the Dan and Maureen Aron Investment Center— this week.
Here’s a look at the progress:

Hodge Hall Undergraduate Center.
Just over two years ago, excavators started clawing at chunks of dirt on the east side of Fee Lane at 10th Street. That was the beginning of the Hodge Hall Undergraduate Center expansion and renovation project at Indiana University's Kelley School of Business. We're now almost halfway through the entire project, and just a couple of months away from being finished with the addition, which will be open when students return to IU this August. Ongoing renovations to the existing building are scheduled to be completed in 2016.
Here's an inside look at the progress.

|Closing time: The last of the concrete block and limestone is being installed.|
The open spaces on the west side of Hodge Hall are getting a face lift this week.
The spaces were left open last summer to make it easier for workers to bring equipment and building supplies in and out on each floor of the Hodge Hall Undergraduate Center expansion.
Wooden barn-like doors protected the interior from the weather all through the winter, but workers started installing the remainder of the concrete block this week. Windows are being set in place, and the limestone exterior will soon be complete.

The limestone facade of the Hodge Hall Undergraduate Center expansion is complete on the front elevation. A few smaller sections were left open on the west side of the building to ease moving equipment and supplies in and out of the building. It will be completed in a couple of weeks.

Carpet has been installed in what will be the new Undergraduate Program offices. Modular walls are going up, mapping out the various offices for the Undergraduate staff.
Even though the exterior work is still underway, this milestone makes it easier to envision completion of the project. The expansion will be ready for the start of classes in Fall 2014.

The windows have been installed in the Hodge Hall Undergraduate Center, giving a collegiate feel to the expansion. The panes are solid with adhesive lead strips creating the grid pattern.
Enjoy the view.
