This staff, faculty, and students were so friendly and welcoming! What a great place to tour and see. The IU campus has a lot of artwork, galleries, and amazingly beautiful structures to see.

What a beautiful campus. The landscaping is really well done with flowers everywhere. Parking is really tough when school is in session. If you have a student in Eigenmann they do offer a temporary parking pass for visitors.

The campus is very beautiful. There are so many great Indiana limestone buildings. Some places to visit are the Student Union (worlds largest), Beck Chapel and Dunn Cemetery behind it, the Mathers Museum, Auditorium, Lilly Library, and Indiana University Art Museum. Parking is really a problem, we spent a hour looking for one, I think the only one might be at the student union.

IU has so much to offer! Music & Opera performances at the MAC (Musical Arts Center), Museums (Art, Mathers, etc), the Lilly Library with rare books, a HUGE Student Union and so much more. Sports abound here, but basketball rules at IU! Football, baseball and soccer all have excellent venues. April is the "Little 500" Bike race (featured in the movie "Breaking Away"), also dubbed the 'World's Greatest College Sports Weekend.' The campus is beautiful to walk through with brick paths, wooded trails and glorious limestone buildings with beautiful architecture. IU is not a 'separate' campus, but is fully integrated as part of our wonderful city. Parking can be an issue, but large events usually have shuttles from parking garages or lots. Bloomington has a plethera of excellent local restaurants and bars, and is really 'beefing' up the hotels available for visitors. Check out the excellent local visitor's center too: www.visitbloomington.com
