SPOTLIGHTING IU SUCCESS
Jump into science
The Integrated Freshman Learning Experience program prepares students for success the moment they step on campus. Although she hasn’t officially started her freshman year at IU Bloomington, Gloria Xue is already immersed in the life of a scientist. As one of only 10 students accepted for this year’s program, Gloria is working with IU researchers to study genes that may cause some cancer cells to resist radiation treatment.Read about the IFLE program
Learning outside the classroom
There’s no better time than summer to explore the great outdoors, especially on the IU Bloomington campus. In July, a group of high school students from Indianapolis took part in a hands-on learning event known as the inaugural Summer Experience in Sustainability and the Environment. Activities like hiking, stream sampling, and nature writing aimed to expand the students’ awareness and understanding of environmental and sustainability issues.See photos from the event
Eight weeks. One language.
What can you learn in eight weeks? At the Flagship Chinese Institute, a year’s worth of college-level Chinese language and culture. As part of IU’s Chinese Flagship program, students in the Flagship Chinese Institute immerse themselves in Chinese language in both formal classroom settings and casual environments—like at the dinner table with instructors and peers. The experience prepares students to confidently speak Chinese in their careers and lives.Learn about the Flagship Chinese Institute
