Indy has a small town feel, but boasts big-city amenities. Host of Super Bowl XLIV and the legendary Indianapolis 500, Indianapolis is home to the Indianapolis Colts, Indiana Pacers, Indianapolis Indians, and Indiana Fever. The city is a premier sports venue that also offers dozens of arts, cultural, and recreational experiences from the world's largest Children's Museum to the Indianapolis Museum of Art, Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, Indianapolis Repertory Theatre, one of the country's largest city parks, and four other urban universities. The city provides students with a wide range of activities to enrich their lives, as well as proximity to some of the best medical facilities in the nation.
Indiana is also listed by the Wall Street Journal as a leading United States life sciences hub, and is home to more than 825 medical device companies, drug manufacturers, and research labs. Large international names, such as Eli Lilly and Company, United Health, and Wellpoint, Inc., are leaders of this growing industry.
Adjusting to life in Indiana has been a joy! There is certainly no shortage of opportunities to take a break from studying. The Indiana State Fair, Indianapolis 500, Devour Downtown and weekly events at Fountain Square are among our favorites. And, it turns out “Hoosier Hospitality” is an actual phenomenon – the people here are incredibly friendly!" Danielle Claflin, OMS II '17
Even though Indianapolis has a variety of opportunities, both professionally and socially, the cost of living is well below the national average. According to the 2010 ACCRA Cost of Living Index, Indianapolis' cost of living is 11.2 percent lower than the national average.
