Indiana University will celebrate IU Day Wednesday, April 20, including an in-person event on campus for the first time since 2019. Whether you are near or far, an alumnus, parent, or current student, IU Day is a celebration for every member of the Hoosier and broader IU community.

During the 24 hours of IU Day, there are many opportunities to participate. Wearing IU gear, sharing #IUday in social media, volunteering, and supporting IU causes such as student scholarships are common ways of celebrating.

This is the first time many students will be able to experience IU Day in person. The IU Day Block Party is from 4-6 p.m., April 20 around IU Bloomington’s Showalter Fountain (1211 E. Seventh St.). The event will include food, music, swag, local vendors, and IU Bloomington organizations.

“This is my first time managing and being a part of the IU Day festivities,” said Leintz Belony, a program manager at the IU Foundation. “I am most excited about being on campus, seeing how it all comes together, and seeing the faces of the students and staff as they gather to celebrate being a Hoosier!”
