Extended Hours For Library

The Main Library has extended its Sunday hours in response to public requests. Beginning this month the library opens from noon to 6 on Sunday instead of the previous hours of 1 to 5 p.m. To maintain the same total number of hours, the library opens one hour later on Friday and Saturday, at 10 a.m. instead of 9 a.m. Since downtown parking is free on Sunday, this means that free parking is available during more of the open hours. The increased Sunday hours coincide with the opening of newly renovated auditorium and expanded program offerings on Sunday afternoons, including movies, music, storytelling and dance.

IU Ranks High for Public Universities

IU Bloomington has ranked number 30 for public universities, and 76th of the top 100 universities overall, according to the latest survey by U.S. News and World report. The indicators used to determine rankings include graduation rate, financial resources, faculty resources, student retention, selectivity, reputation and alumni giving.

A high ranking is useful for recruiting out-of-state and foreign students who may not be as familiar with I U as in-state students. Although I U has a sizeable number of out-of-state and foreign students, the majority of the students are from Indiana and most decide to attend IU based on factors other than national rankings.

IU officials acknowledge that it is flattering to attain high ratings, but it has little influence on the overall administration of the university.
