I’ve seen quite a few college campuses, but this might be the prettiest ever. There are trees and wooded pathways throughout, and the limestone buildings are magnificent. The campus is huge but well-contained, with an impressive array of academic and cultural offerings. Exceeded expectations!

Without Indiana University, there would not be much in Bloomington. It is great to have this university in the town, and to see all the college aged kids having fun. In the summer or fall, the campus is most beautiful. It is still nice in...More

One of the most beautiful universities I have visited. Limestone everywhere. The buildings are magnificent. Walk around, go inside some of the buildings they are wonderful. Definitely visit the Union Hall, the Biddle Hotel is inside, such a treat.

Suggested times are spring to fall. When plants are blooming or leaves turning IU is the most beautiful campus. Also Little 5 is an amazing time, one of the greatest weekends.

My family toured the campus on a guided tour following the information session as part of a week long Spring Break during which we toured 5 different universities in the Midwest. The campus is 2000 acres. There's great distances between the buildings; I'd venture to...More

Th campus used to be remarkably beautiful. With The McRobbie administration's emphasis on building structures and facade, and image over quality, the campus is less beautiful and the quality of the school overall has lessened. "Heart", that intangible quality, is all but gone, except among...More

Rankings of America’s “Most Beautiful College Campuses” are proliferous. They are found in every year in every college guide and business periodical. Most such polls are bogus. Sure, they include some campuses of undeniable beauty in their list, but it seems that other less attractive...More
