Hello and welcome to Indiana University!
Coming to a new country and a new school can be a difficult challenge, but IU provides different programs and resources to help you succeed in your new surroundings.
Here at IU Student Media and at the Indiana Daily Student, we work to keep you informed about what’s going on on campus and in the Bloomington community. You can pick up a paper every Monday and Thursday, read our coverage at idsnews.com and follow us on social media to keep up-to-date on everything you need to know.
We’ve prepared this guide for you as you begin your time at IU — giving you the lowdown on what the Office of International Services can do for you, the culture centers on campus, how Counseling and Psychological Services can help with the transition and more.
IU has a large campus with a huge student population. It can be intimidating at first, but it starts to feel like home before you know it.
Welcome to campus! I, along with the rest of the Indiana Daily Student staff, wish you all the best of luck as you start your college career here at IU.
