Take advantage of everything Indiana University has to offer with the Intensive Freshman Seminars program. Students who participate in IFS have the unique opportunity to move into campus housing early, take a three credit hour class with one of IU’s leading faculty members, and experience some of the exciting activities at Indiana University and in the city of Bloomington. During the two and a half week program, students learn firsthand what it’s like to be in a college classroom, what faculty expect in college-level work, and make lasting friendships with other incoming and current IU students.
