Welcome to the Natatorium, the largest indoor
aquatic facility in the US.

0:00:06.410,0:00:11.430
The Natatorium has hosted everything from
high school meets to national meets to Olympic

0:00:11.430,0:00:12.650
trials.

0:00:12.650,0:00:19.650
Michael Phelps qualified for his first Olympic
Games here in 2000 at the age of 15!

0:00:19.650,0:00:25.230
The IUPUI Swimming and Diving teams also call
the Natatorium home, with the main pool here

0:00:25.230,0:00:27.640
as well as another practice pool.

0:00:27.640,0:00:32.099
IUPUI is a Division 1 athletics program in
the Horizon League.

0:00:32.099,0:00:35.870
We have 8 men’s teams and 10 women’s teams.

0:00:35.870,0:00:42.809
We have basketball, soccer, golf, track and
field, volleyball, tennis, and so many more,

0:00:42.809,0:00:48.030
and students can get into all home games for
free with the CrimsonCards.

0:00:48.030,0:00:50.829
Our teams are great to go and watch.

0:00:50.829,0:00:55.480
The men’s basketball team even plays their
games at the Indiana Farmers Coliseum at the

0:00:55.480,0:00:58.519
State Fairgrounds, which is a really cool
venue.

0:00:58.519,0:01:03.199
Let’s go take a look at where our soccer
teams play in Carroll Stadium.

0:01:03.199,0:01:08.200
We’re standing in the middle of Carroll
Stadium, this massive stadium is where our

0:01:08.200,0:01:13.590
soccer teams play and the campus often holds
events like Light Up the Night.

0:01:13.590,0:01:17.680
The Indy Eleven team also used to play at
the stadium.

0:01:17.680,0:01:23.800
Back in 1987 when the PanAm games were hosted
in Indianapolis, Carroll Stadium, along with

0:01:23.800,0:01:28.159
the Natatorium, were used as venues for some
of the games.

0:01:28.159,0:01:34.229
We also had our softball complex, which is
just to the west of us, built in preparation

0:01:34.229,0:01:36.520
for the games.

0:01:36.520,0:01:41.799
For students who don’t necessarily want
to be on a D1 team in college, there are tons

0:01:41.799,0:01:44.750
of ways to stay fit and have fun on campus.

0:01:44.750,0:01:49.359
Let’s go take a look at the campus recreation
facility in the Campus Center.

0:01:49.359,0:01:54.500
We’re in the lower level of the Campus Center
right now, standing in the campus recreation

0:01:54.500,0:01:56.189
center.

0:01:56.189,0:02:00.281
Students living on campus can access this
facility for free, and if you don’t live

0:02:00.281,0:02:04.929
on campus there’s a really affordable fee
to get a year membership.

0:02:04.929,0:02:09.030
This space is really great if you’ve just
got some time between classes and want to

0:02:09.030,0:02:12.530
get a workout in or just take a fitness class.

0:02:12.530,0:02:18.290
We also have tons of intramural teams that
you can join for things like dodgeball, sand

0:02:18.290,0:02:21.069
volleyball, basketball, and a bunch more.

0:02:21.069,0:02:26.209
Ok, next we’re going to take a look at something
a lot of people are concerned about when they

0:02:26.209,0:02:29.090
go to college: transportation and safety.

Transportation and Safety

IUPUI helps students quickly and safely travel across campus with the JagLine shuttle service. Explore the other ways IUPUI helps keep students safe and connected.

Transportation and Safety

Description of the video:

0:00:00.210,0:00:04.120
We’re standing at the JagLine bus stop outside
of the Campus Center.

0:00:04.120,0:00:09.460
The JagLine is IUPUI’s campus shuttle service,
free for all students.

0:00:09.460,0:00:13.009
There are six routes that connect all of the
main areas of campus.

0:00:13.009,0:00:18.599
But, being in downtown Indianapolis, there
are a ton more transportation resources.

0:00:18.599,0:00:26.579
The IndyGo goes all throughout downtown Indianapolis,
there are even student discounts for the IndyGo.

0:00:26.579,0:00:31.859
The city also just finished the RedLine which
stops just off-campus and connects to the

0:00:31.859,0:00:33.940
northern part of the city.

0:00:33.940,0:00:37.430
Pacers’ bike share is behind us here.

0:00:37.430,0:00:42.700
You can rent a bike to ride across campus
or to ride across the city, same thing with

0:00:42.700,0:00:44.489
Bird and Lime scooters.

0:00:44.489,0:00:50.789
They all make getting around easy, not that
there’s anything wrong with walking.

0:00:50.789,0:00:56.670
Across the street here, you can also see some
of the parking available at IUPUI.

0:00:56.670,0:01:01.890
All students are allowed to have cars on campus,
but you do need to have a parking pass in

0:01:01.890,0:01:04.309
order to park.

0:01:04.309,0:01:09.100
Parking Services oversees all parking and
transportation services on campus.

0:01:09.100,0:01:14.000
There are surface lots and garages across
campus, and if you’re living on campus there

0:01:14.000,0:01:16.780
are also other parking options.

0:01:16.780,0:01:21.520
Now let’s go take a look at some of the
safety features on campus.

0:01:21.520,0:01:25.110
The IU police are responsible for keeping
our campus safe.

0:01:25.110,0:01:32.329
They have 51 full-time officers as well as
several part-time officers and student cadets.

0:01:32.329,0:01:34.370
You can see them all over campus.

0:01:34.370,0:01:39.360
They’re always willing to help, even if
it’s just car problems or you get locked

0:01:39.360,0:01:41.210
out of a building.

0:01:41.210,0:01:45.649
The IU Police Department is housed next to
Ball Hall.

0:01:45.649,0:01:51.470
The campus has over 100 emergency phones and
call boxes across campus.

0:01:51.470,0:01:56.070
When you press the button, a blue strobing
light will go off and you’ll immediately

0:01:56.070,0:02:01.490
be linked to the IUPUI Public Safety Dispatch
Center.

0:02:01.490,0:02:06.520
The university is really good about letting
students know what is going on around campus

0:02:06.520,0:02:12.410
through IU Notify: they’ll alert students
if there are any immediate dangers.

0:02:12.410,0:02:19.000
They can send messages straight to you through
text, email, and phone calls.

0:02:19.000,0:02:24.790
There are also a few other great resources
that make me feel really safe on campus.

0:02:24.790,0:02:28.550
The Safewalk Program and the RAVE guardian
safety app.

0:02:28.550,0:02:32.200
Both of these resources help you get around
safely.

0:02:32.200,0:02:38.530
So the Safewalk Program is a service where
you just call a phone number and 24/7, they

0:02:38.530,0:02:46.600
will provide an escort to walk you to your
car or across campus, their number is 274-SAFE.

0:02:46.600,0:02:51.560
And then the RAVE app is an app that lets
you invite friends and family to join your

0:02:51.560,0:02:54.310
network as social guardians.

0:02:54.310,0:02:58.900
If you’re walking, you can virtually invite
one of your guardians to walk with you on

0:02:58.900,0:02:59.950
or off-campus.

0:02:59.950,0:03:07.020
The app has a safety feature that will directly
connect you to the IU Police or local 911

0:03:07.020,0:03:09.270
in an emergency.

0:03:09.270,0:03:15.090
Another big part of safety at IUPUI is the
CrimsonCard, which gives authorized users

0:03:15.090,0:03:17.580
access to buildings like campus housing.

0:03:17.580,0:03:21.300
Let’s go take a look at some of the options
for campus housing.
