There are two defining characteristics that have shaped this Indiana town and its people: the land and the university.
The hills, forests, and lakes provide a sanctuary; one that is valued and protected. The limestone is quarried and milled by hard-working Hoosiers, and turned into beautiful buildings and sculptures throughout the area and the nation.
Students and faculty from across the country and the world flock to Indiana University, bringing ideas and dreams to a community that embraces them all. It’s a place that nurtures artists and scientists, farmers and philosophers, athletes and musicians. It’s a community of aspirations and inspirations, a breeding ground for transformations.
