Indiana University, rated as one of the five most beautiful campuses in the United States by
Thomas A. Gaines in his book, The Campus as a Work of Art, is located in Bloomington. The sprawling 1,860 acres of rolling and wooded campus is graced with Indiana limestone buildings that are Collegiate Gothic in style. Indiana University, the oldest state university west of the Alleghenies, was founded in 1820 and has grown into one of the world's most distinguished institutions of higher learning.

The cultural strengths of the university are many and all are available to the visitors of the community. With a cosmopolitan flavor seldom found in a community of it's size, Bloomington offers something for everyone.

The University's role as a leader in the visual and performing arts draws a huge amount of world class performances and exhibitions to Bloomington each year. The Musical Arts Center, home to the longest opera program in the Western Hemisphere offers several opera performances throughout the year. The Auditorium has a full season of Broadway, dance and musical performances for all to enjoy. The building itself is worth a visit for the Thomas Benton Murals. The Fine Arts Museum and the Lilly Library showcase numerous pieces of art and rare books. The world's largest student union provides a 200-room hotel, several dining facilities, a bookstore and recreation area.

Over 18 visitor attractions featuring museums, historic structures and entertainment facilities are available to enter, research and explore. "The town thrives on students and Bobby Knight's Hoosier Basketball team. Though small, Bloomington has pocket communities reflecting its artistic and athletic diversity...IU's world-renowned music school supplies enough talent for more than 1,000 musical events a year."
