In the crush of coursework and internships, it can be hard to squeeze in a workout. Luckily, we’re one of the only off-campus communities in the city to have a sunny gym that’s just steps away from your apartment and open 24/7. That means you can lift, run and take in the sweeping views of the pool whenever it fits your schedule.
The Dillon crew enjoys this spot on the regular. It might have something to do with the fact that they have $1 well drinks and 25-cent wings on Mondays, $2 beer, burgers, breadsticks and wings on Tuesdays, trivia on Wednesdays, free shirts on Thursdays, and free food on Fridays.DIRECTIONS
If you’re looking for fresh, locally grown, organic produce – this is the place for you. They’ve even got a full-service butcher shop. Stock up and chow down!DIRECTIONS
Get into nature – in less than half an hour. Bring a picnic, rent a boat and paddle around, or stay and camp for the weekend. You’ll come back to campus refreshed and invigorated.DIRECTIONS
This classic Bloomington standby (since 1927!) is known all over for their signature drinking game “sink the biz.” They’ve got some pretty great pizza, Stromboli and burgers, as well.DIRECTIONS
When you’ve got the munchies, Baked! is the spot to satisfy your cookie craving. They’ll even customize the ingredients for you. Be warned: this place is habit-forming.DIRECTIONS
Head here to try the legendary hairy bear, Indiana craft brews, or to see Bearyoke, Jazz Fables jazz show, or live stand-up (past comics include Ellen DeGeneres and Roseanne Barr).DIRECTIONS
