Learn how to prepare for IFS! Understand all you need to know in advance, your IFS timeline, and what to expect both during and following the program.
At IFS, you’ll be more involved than you have ever been. You won't have unused time. In addition to classwork and preparation for class, you will also experience the rich cultural opportunities at IU Bloomington and learn about faculty expectations for college students. You may also participate in a variety of activities including informal sports, movie nights, arts performances, and programs highlighting various IU and community services. Part of the experience is balancing your time and learning to have fun while also working hard to be a successful college student.
You will have a chance to get to know other freshmen, the student staff, your professor, and us; we hope these connections will help to sustain you throughout your time here.
