Indiana state university
Indiana State University (IND State) is a public university in Terre Haute, Indiana. It was founded in 1865 and offers over 100 undergraduate majors and more than 75 graduate and professional programs. Indiana State is classified among “D/PU: Doctoral/Professional Universities”.
On December 20, 1865, the Indiana General Assembly founded Indiana State University in Terre Haute as the Indiana State Normal School. With a gift of $73,000, Chauncey Rose helped secure its location in Terre Haute. Its primary objective as the State Normal School was to prepare elementary and high school teachers. In 1908 and 1928, respectively, the school conferred its first baccalaureate and master’s degrees. Due to an increasing mission, the Indiana State Normal School has renamed the Indiana State Teachers College in 1929 and the Indiana State College in 1961. The college was renamed Indiana State University in 1965 by the Indiana General Assembly in honor of the college’s expanding degree offerings and growing student body.
The main campus of Indiana State University occupies more than 200 acres (0.81 km2) in the center of Terre Haute, on the north side of the city’s commercial sector. Over 60 brick and limestone buildings, halls, and labs make up the main campus.
The campus is still being made more attractive. For example, a portion of Seventh Street that passes by the university has been turned into a boulevard with flowerbeds and vintage light posts, and in 2002 the outdated power plant was demolished and replaced with a more contemporary structure.
