The great outdoors — IU Bloomington style

Yes, that was Al Roker on Tuesday morning talking on NBC’s “Today” show about “what’s happening in our neck of the woods.”

A student reads at the IU Bloomington Arboretum.

As part of its regular “Today’s Classroom” segment, “Today” featured IU Bloomington as one of the best colleges for students who love the outdoors. The report praised our bicycle-friendly 2,000-acre campus and the annual Little 500 race; IU Outdoors Adventures trips and skills courses for college credit offered in conjunction with the Department of Recreation, Park and Tourism Studies in the new School of Public Health; and our award-winning IU Campus Recreational Sports programs, which Sports Illustrated on Campus called “perhaps the nation’s top recreational-sports program.”
