All new students and their families are invited to attend for an official welcome and introduction to the IU community.
A tradition on the Bloomington campus since 1933, the Induction Ceremony serves as the official start to Welcome Week and a bookend to IU Commencement. Families are invited to attend the ceremony as their Hoosier is inducted into the IU academic community. The event will also be livestreamed for family members unable to be on campus. The ceremony includes an introduction of the entering class, their commitment to The Indiana Promise, and the presentation of the IU alma mater, “Hail to Old IU”.
