To put it simply, IU Day is a worldwide, 24-hour, binge-watching, social-sharing, IU-wearing celebration of Indiana University and the people who make IU possible (that’s you). Maybe you’re a student getting your start. Maybe you’re an alumnus well on your way. Maybe you’re a parent, friend, or fan with a special place in your heart for “old IU.” In any case, these IU connections are cause for celebration.
The 2019 IU Day party trended nationally on Twitter and brought together IU lovers from around the world. See all of the results here!
There are five official ways to join the celebration:
Now, you might be asking, “If IU Day is a celebration of me, then why am I asked to give?” That’s a fair question.
The truth is, the world-class education and research that IU provides are largely dependent on private support. So while celebrating IU’s present and past is definitely worthwhile, it’s also our responsibility to look ahead to the future students, alumni, staff, faculty, parents, friends, and fans. Their IU is not yet guaranteed, which is why we ask for your help.
IU Day was celebrated on April 10, 2019. The fifth annual IU Day will take place Thursday, April 23, 2020.
Spring weather (April showers aside) allows us to celebrate IU outdoors. This late-semester time is also an opportunity to show students some fun before they buckle down for finals.
IU Day moves slightly year to year to best accommodate campus and exam schedules, weekends, holidays, and other events. But as sure as spring follows winter, you can expect IU Day come April!
We love that you’re excited for the next IU Day! To share your excitement, just stamp your Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter post with #IUday.
First of all, thank you!
