Education / Residency / Why Indy?
With a city population of nearly 800,000 and a total metropolitan area population of over 1,500,000, Indianapolis is 13th largest in the United States in city population and 29th in metropolitan population. This is large enough to support a richly diverse cultural environment yet small enough to maintain an affordable and neighborly community.
Downtown Indianapolis (a few minutes from the IU Medical Center) is the city's crown jewel. It is a classic example of urban restoration in the midst of new hotels and office buildings of outstanding architectural design. It supports a range of activities, from shopping to fine dining, from sporting events to musicals. Day or night, something exciting is happening in downtown Indianapolis!
The surrounding neighborhoods have a variety of activities to offer as well. Broad Ripple is the heart of the art community, hosting the region's largest outdoor art events. Eagle Creek Park, a 4,200-acre natural park, is a haven for the outdoor enthusiast as it is home to trails for hiking or biking, courses for golfing and a reservoir for sailing or rowing.
Indianapolis, Indiana (a large city with a small town feel) adds to our educational environment. There are a great many things to do in our city. Whether it be spending time in the downtown (click here) , watching a Colt’s game (click here), go to a spring baseball game at Victory Field (click here), visiting the Indianapolis Children’s Museum (click here), Indianapolis Museum of Art (click here), or Zoo (click here), or watching a race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway (click here) we believe that Indianapolis has much to offer in addition to top quality residency education.
