Picture yourself at IU Fort Wayne
An extension of IU’s Indianapolis campus, IU Fort Wayne shares its friendly, walkable campus with Purdue Fort Wayne, including picturesque green lawns, modern buildings, and public spaces like the Walb Student Union and the Helmke Library. All Fort Wayne students come together for campus events like Homecoming, the Chancellor’s Chili Fest in the fall, and cheering on the Purdue Fort Wayne Mastodons, Fort Wayne’s only Division I college sports program, in 14 different sports throughout the year.
Fort Wayne, Indiana’s second-largest city, provides students with a rich city life beyond campus, including great restaurants, arts and performance events, Minor League Baseball games, and 86 city parks. As one of the state’s largest medical communities, it also offers excellent professional resources and employment opportunities for IU Fort Wayne graduates pursuing careers in health sciences.
