Indiana University-Bloomington

Bloomington, INwww.iub.edu
Indiana University-Bloomington is the flagship campus of a large state school, based in a small, vibrant college town. Its 33,000 undergraduate students come from all over the U.S. and more than 130 countries for an education at one of the country's top-ranked state schools. A beautiful campus includes several buildings that are on the National Register of Historic Places. The university offers a staggering 200 majors spread across 12 colleges and schools. IU is also a media darling. It has a multimillion-dollar athletic endowment for its 22 varsity sports teams, and Greek life comes standard for Hoosiers. Still, it offers alternatives to party-filled weekends, including a bowling alley in the student union and the Little 500, a huge collegiate bike race not unlike the Indianapolis 500. Though the size of the institution can seem intimidating, it's also IU's greatest asset -- where else can you study Hungarian and enjoy the largest harp department in the world? The university's graduation rate is 77%. Salary benefits for students are less stellar: A median income of $52,200 for recent graduates is slightly below what's expected from a school like IU.
