Indiana University--Bloomington

The Ideal College ExperienceIndiana University Bloomington attracts students from around the globe who want the ideal college experience-great traditions, a gorgeous campus, international culture, Big Ten sports, and an active academic climate.Founded in 1820, IU Bloomington is the flagship campus of Indiana Universitys eight campuses statewide. Innovation, creativity, and academic freedom are hallmarks of IU Bloomington and its world-class contributions in research and the arts. A legacy of preparing leadersWe've nurtured doers and leaders over our past two centuries by creating an academic atmosphere where revolutionary ideas and unexpected collaborations rule the day. IU educational experiences change the lives of our graduates--and the lives of the communities they serve as experts and professionals.From African history to analytical chemistryEnvironmental policy, social psychology, music, nuclear physics, foreign languages--our diverse academic programs are among the best, with several ranking #1 and in the top 10 nationally. We're also known for innovation and firsts like the nation's first informatics school.On podiums around the worldIU faculty, students, and alumni aspire to the highest standards of their fields, bringing home prestigious national and international awards: Tonys, Oscars, Nobel Prizes, Pulitzer Prizes, Emmys, Grammys, Olympic medals, Guggenheims, and Fulbrights. You'll find us on podiums and stages of all kinds--performing, accepting honors, standing up for human rights, and presenting our research.A mecca of music and fine artsThe top-ranked IU Jacobs School of Music and our fine arts, theatre, and entertainment offerings rival much larger cities. IU stages more than 1,000 performances every year, in venues that are artistic experiences in themselves. The Musical Arts Center--which we call "the mac"--is one of the grandest arts venues in the United States, seating 1,460 and featuring a 90' x 60' main stage.Trekking the globe with open minds and big heartsWe extend our famous IU "Hoosier hospitality" to ideas as well as people. With open-mindedness and kindheartedness, we support a diverse, international environment that seeks out all perspectives and draws on our global experiences. IU consistently earns accolades for overseas study programs and worldwide philanthropic ventures--and for a forward-thinking campus climate.Breathtaking CampusThomas Gaines called the IU Bloomington campus one of the five most beautiful in the nation in The Campus as a Work of Art. Most prospective students who see our campus apply for admission. Abundant trees, flowers, and Indiana limestone buildings dating back to the late nineteenth century cover the nearly 2,000 acres of campus. Dunn Woods, the Arboretum, and the Jordan River provide a natural laboratory and breathtaking scenery.Vibrant CultureBloomington, Indiana, is the arts and cultural hub of the Midwest. While IUs amazing arts and entertainment offerings play a large role in the citys cultural atmosphere, Bloomington is extraordinary in its own right. Bloomington residents and IU students, faculty, and staff form a vibrant, active community that benefits from the metropolitan qualities of a large city and the easy pace of a small town.
