Even if you are not a student, it is a gorgeous campus to just explore. You can look for activities that might be going on at the theater, etc. Also, you can visit the library or the art gallery for free. Just look at the beautiful granite buildings the lovely surrounding neighborhoods. Makes one want to be a student again.

I am an alumntus of Indiana University and have visited many other colleges in my varied experiences. IU has a lovely, beautiful campus that must be the envy of any other institution of higher learning in the USA. IU is beautiful!!

I was lucky to be here during the peak of the fall color season. The campus is beautiful. They've done a great job of integrating the newer buildings with the older building to give the campus and consistent look.

The Indiana Memorial Union is a wonderful facility. The location makes visiting campus attractions very convenient. The building looks like a castle and I was treated royally.

I graduated from IU in 1988. It was a beautiful campus then and even more so now. The 1-star reviewer probably never stepped foot in a classroom. Yes, it's a party school - probably less so now then when I was there - but if you apply yourself, you can get a great education that will define an awesome career.

The students have spirit and the campus is gorgeous with a of trees and beautiful Indiana limestone buildings. There is a lot of local shopping and a few chains such as Chipolte and Urban Outfitters. Don't overlook the small shops and boutique restaurants.

My wife and I both graduated from IU in 1977 and like to go back to visit every few years. I was very impressed by all the new buildings and landscaping that has been done over the past few years.
