New to IUPUI? We have you covered. We polled OTEAM to find out the best places to go, things to do and ways to meet people at IUPUI. Here are the results, with assists from Amber Greaney, a junior majoring in sustainable management and policy, and Jaida Fordham, a junior nursing major.
What IUPUI activity or event should you absolutely try?
Regatta, on Sept. 22 this year, got more OTEAM responses than any other event on campus. Weeks of Welcome, or WOW, was a close second. Check out this year’s WOW Aug. 18-30.
“Join a student organization” was the overwhelming favorite for ways to make new friends on campus. IUPUI has about 500 to choose from. Find the one for you by attending the Involvement Expo on Aug. 28 or by searching online at The Den.
Also receiving votes: WOW, talk to people in your classes, live on campus, join Fraternity and Sorority Life, get an on-campus job.
Where’s the best place to eat on or near campus?
So many options! On campus, OTEAM recommends the food court on the first floor of the Campus Center, especially Chick-fil-A. The space is being renovated this year, so keep your eyes open for even more options in the future. Off campus, several people recommend the buffet of eateries at 10th St. and Indiana Ave.
Also receiving votes: The Den by Denny’s, Tower Dining, Outtakes, Chipotle, MADD Greeks Mediterranean Grille, Moe’s, Yats, Bento Asian Bistro, Bazbeaux Pizza, Sub Zero Nitrogen Ice Cream, Noodles & Co.
