Students do yardwork

U.S. News & World Report ranked IUPUI third among national universities this fall in the “Up-and-Comers” category, according to the 2012 edition of the magazine’s “Best Colleges” issue.

The category is based on surveys of college administrators who identify promising and innovative changes in academics, faculty, student life, campus or facilities. Three IUPUI programs drew special attention: first-year experience, service learning and learning communities.
