Work hard, play hard

A dynamic and energetic student life counterbalances hard work in and for the community for IUPUI students.

The student-led Jagathon Dance Marathon serves as a national model and continues to set fundraising records to support pediatric research at Riley Hospital for Children. Our Black Student Union has organized one of the longest-running events to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., now in its 50th year.

In 2018, the IUPUI Move Crew welcomed more than 2,400 students to IUPUI’s residence halls.  
Made possible by a gift from the Ball family of Muncie in 1927, Ball Hall was one of IUPUI’s first residence halls. After upgrades and expansions over the years, it is slated for renovation in 2019.
