Campus Visits

Now is the time to start planning for the next big step of your educational journey. Community & School Partnerships can help with its Campus Visits program. School and community groups of up to 50 elementary, junior, or high school students may choose from half-day or full-day visits to the Bloomington campus where you’ll learn about IU, live the life of a college student, and see firsthand the value a college degree.

Spring Shadow Visit

Spring Shadow is a popular three-day, two-night residential program that pairs high school sophomores and juniors with college students for one-on-one mentoring. Participants gain an introduction to campus life at IU Bloomington and a first-hand experience of college classes, what it means to be an IUB student, information on the admissions process, scholarship opportunities, extracurricular activities, and much more. Preference given to highschool freshmen.

Visit IU Program (VIP)

In partnership with the Boys & Girls Club Crestmont Club, the Visit IU Program (VIP) introduces underrepresented students in the Bloomington area to college life through monthly visits to IU’s flagship campus. Visits are tailored to the students’ individual interests, grade level, and college preparatory timeline. Students not only gain insight about IU Bloomington, but also are introduced to the many resources available to help them get ready for the academic, social, and financial demands of higher education. 

I was exposed to a multitude of college tools and programs prior to my initial enrollment. CSP continues to be an amazing program that connects IU Bloomington to the youth in the community and molds future leaders.
