IU is a great university and a beautiful rolling campus with lots of trees and stoic limestone buildings. Whether visiting or attending, it is a place where you can fall in love while receiving a world-class education.

Quiet right now since most of the students are gone for the summer. IU's landscaping is top notch and they maintain an amazing amount of flora. Always see plenty of birds, giant squirrels and deer.
