What to do On the rare occasion you have nothing to do

HSJI students should plan to be busy most of the week, however, there is some downtime. Fortunately, there are plenty of interesting places around the IU campus that students can enjoy on these rare occasions.

Kirkwood Avenue

Kirkwood is the ideal place for shopping and eating when students are not working on projects. The picturesque street is located right outside the Sample Gates by Franklin Hall.

Also right outside Franklin Hall is the Ernie Pyle statue. Herman Wells and Hoagy Carmichael can also be found around campus and provide the perfect picture opportunities to send back home.

Eskenazi Museum of Art

The Eskenazi Museum of Art is located on campus and open Tuesday through Saturday form 10 am until 5 pm. Also visit the building after hours when it gets dark outside to watch a light show reflected on the blank wall.

Fine Arts Building

The Fine Arts Building on campus provides many ways to pass the time. Students can shop in the Friends of Art Bookshop for art supplies, books, snacks, games, and more. Tuesday through Saturday from noon to 4 pm, students can also visit the Grunwald Gallery of Art.

Dining Hall

Students can pick up breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snacks from the Wright Food Court anytime* they need something.

*Various restaurants in the food court open and close at various times, but most are closed by 10 pm.

There are many more things to do at IU.
