IUPUI turns 50

IUPUI partied like it was 1969 last week in honor of the university's 50th birthday. Attendees celebrated by participating in a variety of activities and events at the 50th Anniversary Birthday Bash, including getting their picture taken in a 360-degree photo booth, showing off their moves at an all-day dance party, getting a virtual reality 3D tour of campus, touring a new interactive map of community engagement and enjoying birthday cakes made by local bakeries.
