Studying here gives me a lot of experience and opportunities to figure out what I want to do as far as my career. I’ve also found my people on campus and gotten involved with different organizations, especially those focused on the Black student community.

Our campus has also won the Higher Education Excellence in Diversity (HEED) Award from INSIGHT into Diversity magazine for 12 years in a row.
The thrill of Jaguar athletics
Get involved with Jaguar traditions and events
From Weeks of Welcome at the beginning of both fall and spring semesters to Jagathon (our dance marathon benefiting Riley Hospital for Children), the annual Regatta canoe race and festival, and Jagapaloooza (our year-end campus carnival), you’ll find plenty of Jaguar events to keep you busy throughout the year.
Right from day one at IUPUI, I was able to get a job. I was able to get involved with the dance marathon here and get my job as an ambassador. I would say everyone has been so welcoming and so friendly, and I had a lot of opportunities just right from the get-go during Weeks of Welcome. I was able to step out of my comfort zone.
