Wednesday, April 21, is IU Day—a 24-hour, binge-watching, social-sharing, IU-wearing, online celebration of Indiana University and the people who make IU possible. We value IU’s support of the work we do here at WFIU and WTIU and have planned some special programming and events in honor of IU Day. Here’s how you can join in the celebration:
Beautiful by Design: The Indiana University Bloomington Campus
Sunday, April 18 and Wednesday, April 21 at 1pm on WTIU
Explore one of the most beautiful college campuses in America. Walking across the Indiana University Bloomington campus one cannot help but be charmed by its natural topography, native limestone, and appealing architecture. But the campus’s beauty is not by chance. Careful planning and cultivation went into creating an environment that evokes feelings of admiration and wonder. Beautiful by Design examines the distinctive features of this campus—and the reasons for its appeal.
Virtual event – Beautiful by Design: The Indiana University Bloomington Campus Screening and Q&A
