IU Day

Here’s how we celebrate IU Day!

IU Day. 4/20/2022

WEAR your IU gear and SHARE your pride by posting on social media with #IUDAY. Beyond showcasing your IU spirit, you can win funds for your favorite IU cause through our social media challenges.

ENJOY binge-worthy IU videos and games. Visit iuday.iu.edu for stories and downloads.

SUPPORT the IU cause closest to your heart. This year we are asking for donation to the IU South Bend Student Emergency Relief Fund. This fund helps students bridge the gap when unexpected expenses arise, keeping them in class and helping them stay focused on earning their degree.

ATTEND the events we are hosting to reconnect with alumni and IU.
