Go Hoosiers!

Red Carpet Days


From the moment you arrive until the end of your Red Carpet Day, you’ll experience the great feeling of becoming a Hoosier.

See the tentative schedule below—it’s designed specifically for admitted students. You’ll receive a full schedule in your confirmation email after you register and a printed schedule (part of the Red Carpet Day booklet) when you check in at your session.

Red Carpet Day check-in begins at 8:15 a.m. Required activities end at lunchtime, and optional activities wrap up by 5 p.m. Start planning your trip.

Campus Tour

Join an IU student for a campus tour—see where you’ll take classes and learn more about student activities and IU traditions. Already visited IU? This tour will still be valuable. It’s different from our regular tour, so you’ll learn new things about IU and see new places.

The IU Experience

Join a discussion about IU life featuring a faculty member, one or more students, an admissions director, and staff from Residential Programs and Services and the Office of First Year Experience Programs.
