Indiana University Bloomington attracts students from around the globe who want the ideal college experience—great traditions, a gorgeous campus, international culture, Big Ten sports, and an active academic climate.
Founded in 1820, IU Bloomington is the flagship campus of Indiana University’s eight campuses statewide. Innovation, creativity, and academic freedom are hallmarks of IU Bloomington and its world-class contributions in research and the arts. For our traditions like the world-famous Little 500 bicycle race and our commitment to emerging technologies, IU was named the “Hottest Big State School” in 2005 by Newsweek, America’s Hot Colleges.
We nurture bright minds with an exceptional support network and breadth of programs. For technology infrastructure and support, our campus was named “most wired” among public universities by PC Magazine in 2006. U.S. News & World Report has recognized IU for outstanding freshman programs and residential learning communities, and Time magazine praised our commitment to freshmen when it named IU “College of the Year” in 2001.
