My Day at IU

Experience a day in the life of an IU student

How do you decide if a college is the right fit? We couldn't think of any better way to help you get to know IU than to let you spend an entire week with our students. So we are turning over the IU Admissions Instagram account to three current students during three different weeks in March and April.

Check out what each student has planned for their week, mark your calendars, and then spend time with an IU student (or three!) on Instagram.
