University of Indianapolis
One of the smallest universities in the states, University of Indianapolis, or UIndy, has just 4500 students. However, it also has one of the broadest opportunity profiles of any school in the nation, with a branch campus in Athens and campus affiliations with schools in Belize, China, Israel and Cyprus.
Indy's 500 Industries
Indianapolis was once centered mostly on government and manufacturing, but today encompasses many more opportunities. Education and health care are focuses of the city, as are tourism and finance. Not to mention the Indy 500! It is the only state capital to be in the exact center of its state, and offers parks, museums, fairgrounds, wineries and gardens for weekend activities.
Bring a Car to Indy
A car is almost essential to properly enjoy Indianapolis - although you can take comfort in the fact that it won't be necessary to use it for much of your time at university. While the area around U Indy scores only 65 out of 100 for walkability, it does have plenty of amenities within half a mile. Grocery stores, restaurants, bars, fitness, drug stores, clothing and music areal within half a mile of the campus.
For those truly concerned about the environment (well done!), check out Indianapolis' public transit system. It is clean and well-run, however the routes can take a little time to get used to.
South of the City
South Village, Southdale, Bean Creek and Carson Heights are the neighborhoods closest to the University of Indianapolis, if you prefer to walk where you can. All of these neighborhoods are a short distance south of the city itself, so while you'll probably spend much of the week in the same place, you'll most likely head north for the weekend!
University of Indianapolis Apartments
Indianapolis has a good diversity of apartments, at a good range of prices. While you will be slightly south and east of the city center at UIndy, most of the apartment rentals and housing is actually clustered in the suburbs south of the city, anyway.
You can get a clean, spacious apartment with a pool for under $450 per month, and studios aren't the only choice! Greenwood and Imperail Hills are where you'll find much of the cheap housing rentals.
Engaging with Indianapolis
Indianapolis has a decent range of nightlife and dining, although the city is more centered on commerce and motorsport. The Marion County Fair offers a great night out, for even 6 foot tall children! Tipsey's Bar and Grill and Gallaghers are some of the nightlife venues that are more likely to have live music, but mostly you'll get used to quiet relaxing nights at the pub with a good beer.
For lunchtime munchies, China Garden, Cheeseburger in Paradise, and Chik-Fil-A are close, reliable and cheap!

Is Indianapolis a town where I'll need a car to get to work?
Yes, you will need a car to get to work and otherwise around the city of Indianapolis. The city is sprawling, and with no light rail system, almost all residents drive cars as their only mode of transportation. IndyGo is the city's bus network, but serves primarily to bring commuters into downtown Indianapolis, and is much less expedient, if not unusable, outside of the downtown area.
What would an ideal weekend be like in Indianapolis?
Start out your weekend getting some exercise in the great outdoors at Fort Harrison Park or White River State Park. After a relaxing picnic in the park, head to one of Indianapolis' many museums, like the Indianapolis Museum of Art, the Indiana Medical History Museum, The Children's Museum of Indianapolis, or, of course, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Hall of Fame Museum. Next, make way for some more Indianapolis fun at Fastimes Indoor Karting, the Post Road Recreation Center, Climb Time Indy, or the Eagle Creek Golf Club.
