Founded in 1820, Indiana University Bloomington is the flagship campus of IU’s eight campuses statewide. Innovation, creativity, and academic freedom are hallmarks of our world-class contributions in research and the arts.  From attending events like the Little 500 weekend in the spring or homecoming weekend in the fall, to going to museums like the IU Art Museum or the Wylie House Museum, to attending performances at the IU Auditorium or Jacobs School of Music, there is always something to do.
