The family of quadratic fusion categories provides most examples of ``exotic'' fusion categories, i.e. not coming from finite, Lie, or quantum groups. Recently, Izumi and Grossman families of modular data that are conjectured to give the modular data of Drinfel'd centers of the quadratic fusion categories in general. (In fact, it is true for all known examples.) Using this new modular data, we compute the categorical Frobenius-Schur indicators for these families, an important categorical invariant for fusion categories. Moreover, we look more closely at the relationship between indicators in the fusion category and indicators in its center. This is a preliminary report.
