I spent a year here, my freshman year in 1977-1978. It is where I learned that the world was much bigger than Posey County Indiana. I learned how to meet people; how to learn to interact with people; how people will hurt you; how people will help you. It was your typical freshman learning year but on a beautiful campus.

Rather surprised how pretty this campus was, limestone buildings and wide open spaces made you feel you were visiting the quintessential college town in the United States.

About the visit: We visited the IU campus with my 6 year old son when coming here to see my brother who was a sophomore. The Campus: Indiana University is huge, but not overwhelming at all. Grounds were very well kept, and every student that we talked to was very professional. This is an easy campus to get around. The... More

There is a good reason this is considered one of the 10 most beautiful college campuses in the nation. The landscaping details on every corner with the backdrop of Indiana limestone is like no other. After walking the campus you really feel like you have been somewhere. The Eskenazi Museum of Art, Lily Library and Memorial Union (largest on the... More

A beautiful, sprawling limestone campus that takes up a good portion of the town. Well worth a look and a great place to send a student.

We came for a Nebraska v Indiana football game. We pulled our campers and were able to set up from Fri to Sun in the rv overflow lot behind the baseball field. You have to be self sustainable, no nearby restrooms. It was a great weekend and a great visit to another Big 10 campus

IU basketball games at Assembly Hall are by far the BEST! The atmosphere is second to none! If you can get tickets, I highly recommend you attend a game. This is one of the prettiest college campuses around!

Come on! It's IU! I mean nature-like campus with lots of great architecture and history! Beautifully wooded walks through campus filled with art and the hustle and bustle of student life walking through campus. It's a large campus but easily navigated through different trails through campus and can walk straight to downtown area with great restaurants and shops! You cannot... More

If you haven't taken a stroll through the IU campus, you're missing out. My husband, sister, and I all took a lovely walk on a January day while the students were on break. We're all alumni and my husband and I make it a point to take a walk whenever we're back in town. It's been a while since I... More

Spent an overnight in Bloomington to see an IU men's basketball game at the grand Assembly Hall. Loved the experience, seeing the renovated Hall, our favorite team (Even though we were beaten by Wisconsin!). We also stopped in the bookstore at the student union, but we almost didn't. Student were not on campus, because of Christmas break, so there were... More
