Mini University, a weeklong learning vacation sponsored by the Indiana University Alumni Association and taught by IU Bloomington faculty, sold out for its 46th annual program.

Mini U drew educators, retirees and other lifelong learners to the heart of the IU Bloomington campus for the week of June 11 to 16, where 107 different courses were offered on topics such as urban change, 15th-century music, craft beer and more.

Next year’s Mini University will be held June 10 to 15, and those wishing to be added to the wait list can contact Amy Oakley at or 812-855-6120.
