We saw the musical RENT. Amazing!! One of the most beautiful campus environments in the world. A mini NYC right in the mid-west!

We attended a wedding on the university grounds. I thought it was an unusual place for a wedding but it was perfect. The architecture is beautiful and added to the finest of weddings. The gardens were beautiful, and just inside was a large reception room in their hotel. We also thought a hotel on the campus grounds was unusual but... More

Great university with terrific opportunities for students young and older. The campus is beautiful also. It is rather spread out because it is such a big place. Go IU!

I attended IU way back when but decided to take a drive to view the campus this past summer. Living some 3 hours away it made for a perfect day trip. The school year had already started but seeing the college kids going to and fro reminded me of the years gone by. The campus is well maintained. The stately... More

Returned to my university after a 38 year absence. I can't tell you how beautiful the people and the campus are. Smiles everywhere on student faces, and a welcoming greeting from the clerk in the IMU bookstore! The campus is astoundingly beautiful. A walk through the Indiana Memorial Union building MUST include a peek at Alumni Hall, the Tudor Room--ok,... More

Very beautiful campus with a nice city surrounding it. I underestimated the size of this campus, it's huge! Love the limestone buildings. I'm from the east coast and have visited a number of college campuses, but this is absolutely one of my favorite campuses. The people and students there were very amiable. Thankfully, my little brother is now attending this... More

Nothing special here. People are nice and friendly and easy to get along with. Lots of walking and hot during the summer.

As an Alum I am very partial, but this campus is one of the most beautiful campus's in the United States. The grounds are just magnificent.

IU is a great place to visit. It is a beautiful campus with many mature trees. There are many local places to eat or have a cool brew, that would not be here if not for IU. The lake is within 15 minutes along with a national forest. This is simply a delightful place and a great school.
