IU is a decent school with a beautiful campus but the people that make the campus the way it is are way underpaid and not treated well at all!!

Attended the Beach Boys concert at the auditorium. It is a nice venue. The parking is mostly pretty far away with shuttles provided. There is limited handicapped parking nearby. I recommend reading the parking page on their website to be prepared. There is very limited snacks available (chips, cookies).

Friendly people in a small town! Easy to get around, great eats within walking distance. Nice little local shops with lots of southern indiana flare! Really enjoy Brown county and Columbus, just a short travel east.

I took my daughter to an audition on campus, and I found the campus to be delightful. It felt like what a university campus should fee like. People were very friendly and helpful. My only suggestion for improvement would be to provide a street address for visitors since it was quite difficult to obtain directions to the Musical Arts Center;... More

There are far too many good things to say about IU for the space allotted here. The architecture is amazing. The grounds are well-maintained. World-class performers in the arts, sports, and business have attended this educational institution that is so dear to my heart. When you visit, please take time to walk all around campus. And don't forget to stop... More

This campus gives you the feeling of being happy. Everyone seemed very nice and the presentations were well done. The campus is beautiful, even in the middle of winter. We stayed on campus at the Biddle, and easily walked to a great dinner and breakfast. Very walkable campus, and wonderful college town!

Gorgeous campus with limestone buildings. Friendly campus in great college town. Kirkwood has lots of restaurants ranging from independent restaurants to chains like Noodles and Company. Easy to navigate area. If you're visiting in the summer or early Fall, be sure to visit the farmers market. It's fabulous and a gem.

The tree covered campus sits on the rolling hills of southern Indiana. While bisected by a number of roads it is primarily a pedestrian campus where biking is encouraged. The campus and the city blends together with blurred boundaries. The 4th street/Kirkwood food choices are as varied as any large city featuring nearly any ethnic cusine one might have a... More

IU is a wonderful big ten university. One of its' little known secrets is its' student union. One of the largest if not the largest sporting its' own bowling alley and much more. The food venues are good and varied. One of our favorites we visit especially in December is Sugar 'n' Spice. You'll. Find many goodies but our favorite... More
