What Students Are Saying

4.04 Average Rating
Bloomington is my new home and I cannot imagine ever loving any other school half as much as I love Indiana University. We offer twenty-four awesome sports teams, several hundreds of clubs, multiple world-renowned schools, the world's best college weekend, and a major for anything. Who wouldn't want to attend I.U.?
