Find Your Passion

When passion leads the way, success follows

Although everyone travels a different path through IU, our students have one thing in common: They describe their time here as one of transformation.

No matter how well you know yourself or how concrete your goals are, while you’re at IU, you’ll find new causes, activities, and fields to be passionate about.

It’s up to you to discover them.

Find your passion, find your purpose, find your goal, and then go after it, because nothing is impossible.

And step out of your comfort zone during your free time

This is your chance to take risks in every facet of your life, whether you’re deciding where to live or how to spend your Saturday nights. While you’re a student here, you have carte blanche to jump in and try as many new things as you want.

It doesn’t matter whether the leap you take leads to success or failure. Either way, you’ll learn something valuable about yourself and take another step on your journey toward transformation.

Live large

Apply to live in one of IU’s 23 academic, thematic, and living-learning centers. While some are exclusively for freshman students, many are open to students at every level.

Each community has a unique focus on subjects ranging from general academic scholarship and leadership to outdoor adventures and even sexual identity.
