For our part of #IUDay, we're focusing on the places that make Indiana University special. Follow along with us as we take a look back at some of the most memorable places on campus highlighted by IU Press books.
What better way to highlight the special places on the Indiana University campus than with a book about the campus itself?
The aptly named Indiana University Bloomington is exactly that, and if you only read one book about IU's campus, let it be this one.
This forthcoming title is jam packed with 481 photos from the campus, this book is a comprehensive photo tour of IU-Bloomington penned by someone who knows it better than anyone else: Indiana University Vice President Emeritus Terry Clapacs.
In his 43 years with the university, Clapacs has been involved with 661 major building projects, resulting in personal involvement in more than half of the buildings on campus.
Clapacs puts that intimate knowledge on full display in Indiana University Bloomington, writing in depth on nearly every building as well as offering perspectives on some of the significant artwork scattered throughout the campus and some of the notable gathering spots for students.
Any Hoosier grad should count themselves lucky to read this perfect perspective on a place that so many have called home since the 19th century.
