Welcome to Eskenazi Hall, home of the Herron
School of Art and Design.
The school actually used to be farther away
from the main campus, but in 2005 they built
this building to house Herron.
It’s full of studio spaces designed to meet
the needs of all kinds of artists.
Herron is actually the only professional art
and design school in the state of Indiana,
and because of our location in downtown Indianapolis,
there are a ton of opportunities to get involved
with the art community in and outside of IUPUI.
All of the faculty are practicing artists
and designers, so if you need help getting
involved, you don’t need to look far.
Students here are constantly creating, whether
it’s in the woodshop, painting studios,
metalwork studios, printmaking studio, or
think-it make-it lab.
This building also houses an art library and
an auditorium where artist lectures and events
are held for the art community in Indianapolis.
Some famous alumni of the Herron school of
art and design include Norman Bridwell, who
created Clifford the Big Red Dog, and Bill
Peet, an illustrator, story writer, and animator
who worked on Disney films like Snow White
and the Seven Dwarves and Dumbo.
We’re now standing in one of the painting
This space is dedicated to seniors in the
They each have their own space in the studio,
which they can set up however they want.
The great part about a lot of the programs
at Herron is the studio space you get to work
Almost all of the studios are movable, so
you can work with the equipment and space
that you need.
The professors are really great about coming
around to each student during studio time
to give critique, talk through any ideas,
or just give general feedback.
Now that we’ve taken a look through Eskenazi
Hall, let’s check out Herron’s other building,
the fine arts center.
So this is the Eskenazi Fine Arts Center,
the second building that the Herron School
of Art and Design is in.
This building is dedicated to the sculpture
and ceramics programs.
It’s always really fun to walk through the
building and see what the students are working
Or to walk through the galleries which are
always featuring new exhibits.
We’re actually standing in the entrance
to the building right now which also serves
as gallery space.
Herron also has three other galleries at Eskenazi
Every semester they are adding new exhibits
and artists to check out.
They even have an undergraduate student exhibition
every year where students can submit their
own artwork to make it into the gallery.
The art featured at IUPUI doesn’t stop in
the galleries though.
IUPUI’s campus has a ton of art and sculptures
all over the campus.
Let’s take a quick look at some of the most
iconic pieces around campus.
We’re back in Taylor Courtyard, and you
may have seen this sculpture when we were
This piece is an untitled work by David Von
It’s made up of three identical 55 foot
long L shaped pieces of stainless steel, representing
a Pythagorean triangle.
Since it’s untitled, it’s a bit of a mystery,
but it serves as a central piece of art on
campus as students pass by it on their way
This is Mega-Gem.
This piece is by John Francis Torreano.
It’s such a cool piece and it’s located
here in what many students call Magnolia Courtyard.
In the spring, these Magnolia trees bloom
and it’s so beautiful, probably one of the
best parts of spring at IUPUI.
Now we’re just outside University Library.
This messy-looking sculpture here is called
East Gate/West Gate, by Sasson Soffer.
It’s actually on loan from the Indianapolis
Museum of Art, now called Newfields, and to
bring it to campus they actually transported
it by helicopter to its new location here.
We’ve got one more piece to take a look
Actually we’ve got a few pieces of art here
at Wood Memorial Plaza, but the main attraction
is Wood Fountain.
This is a really popular study and hang-out
spot on campus.
On really nice days, you’ll even see people
hanging in their hammocks on the trees nearby.
The plaza was named after Eli Lilly’s chief
executor, Robert D. Wood, and his wife Billie
There’s tons more art to see on IUPUI’s
campus, but let’s move on and take a deep
dive into the Health Sciences at IUPUI.
IUPUI is home to an extensive medical campus with access to four nearby hospitals. Students interested in the medical field often land in the schools of Nursing, Medicine, Dentistry, or Health and Human Sciences. The IU School of Medicine alone is the largest medical school in the United States.

IUPUI is home to an extensive medical campus,
with access to four hospitals: IU Health University
Hospital, Riley Children’s Hospital, Eskenazi
Hospital, and the Roudebush VA Medical Center.
The IU Medical Center is home to the IU Schools
of Medicine, Nursing, Dentistry, and Health
and Human Sciences.
These schools, in combination with the hospitals
and medical resources, give IUPUI students
tremendous learning and professional opportunities.
Let’s start by taking a look at the School
of Health and Human Sciences.
This school combines programs in the health
sciences, kinesiology, and the tourism and
The great thing about this school is the internship
and professional experience that’s offered
through the city.
We have professional sports teams and a major
tourism industry right here in Indianapolis
and the students here get to go straight from
the classroom to internships and shadowing
experiences where they use what they learn
in hands-on environments.
On the health sciences side of things, it’s
There are four major hospitals that share
IUPUI’s campus, so there’s plenty of opportunities
to get involved through shadowing or interning.
You’ll notice the courtyard over here.
This is another great study space that connects
the Natatorium to the Education and Social
work building we were in earlier.
Let’s go take a look at the School of Nursing
and explore one of their labs.
We’re in one of the School of Nursing SIM
The Indiana University School of Nursing has
two of these interactive learning facilities
here on the IUPUI campus.
These labs give nursing students hands-on
experience that prepares them to work in their
This is where nursing students learn and practice
clinical skills essential to nursing--everything
from taking blood pressure to starting an
The lab provides interactive learning in the
form of videos, demonstrations, interactive
exercises, and simulations, and students get
the opportunity to master the fundamentals
in a secure and supportive environment.
The Sim Lab includes a functionally real labor
and delivery room, as well as an ICU.
These are also equipped with high-fidelity
programmable manikins that serve as artificial
patients, giving nursing students hands-on
experience in a risk-free environment.
Next, we’re going to take a look at athletics
