Our full-length Showcase Days have concluded for the 2014-15 academic year. Please look for new 2015-16 dates soon!

Want to Join Us For a Showcase Day?

Showcase Days begin with check-in from 9:30 – 10:00. Your visit starts with an Admissions presentation about our campus, the application process, and financial aid. An interactive student panel allows you to learn about campus housing, student life, and insights into a spotlighted major from the perspective of the student. After a full campus and housing walking tour, you may select an academic session to see if a certain major is right for you or to learn more about our offerings in the area you plan to pursue. You will meet with staff from that discipline to learn about specific programs, career trajectories, research opportunities, internships, and noteworthy events and alumni from that area of study. The formal Showcase program ends at 2:00pm; however, we invite you to remain for a special First Friday interactive information session featuring one of our degree programs. These take place from 2:00pm to 3:00pm.  We can’t wait to see you here!

Optional Overnight Stay with your Showcase Day

An overnight experience at our River Crossing Campus Housing will be available on the Thursday night before the visit on two Showcase Days (new dates for 2015-16 coming soon). Overnight visitors will stay with an IU South Bend student, so you'll have a chance to hear about campus life from current students and ask all those questions that you don't think will be answered by your tour guide. Be sure to indicate your interest on the sign up form to reserve your space!  Reservations for the overnight experience are limited and must be confirmed in order to participate.  You will get an email to the address listed on the registration form that must be returned to us. 

First Fridays Downtown

When visiting South Bend on a First Friday, be sure to leave time for a trip to our downtown area where you can enjoy the festivities that highlight shopping and dining, as well as arts and entertainment venues. Learn more at DTSB's First Friday Web site. The celebration begins each First Friday at 5:00pm.
