From the Terre Haute Convention and Visitors Bureau: Welcome to the brand new students and their loved ones. Thanks for choosing to explore the City of Terre Haute for the next four years. And to our returning students, welcome back! This fall 2023 semester will be the best one yet.
Terre Haute proudly houses four higher education institutions: Indiana State University (ISU), Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College (SMWC), Ivy Tech Community College, and Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. These educational institutions make up the highly astounding College Town USA.
Not so much of a foodie? That is a-okay because we have countless activities throughout the city. Each university offers a calendar online, highlighting big city-wide events each year. When heading off-campus, visit one of Terre Haute’s local nature spots, like Deming Park, to catch some fresh air or even a peaceful study spot. Deming Park also offers a frisbee golf course, where you could start an intramural team!
Got a green thumb? Visit The Pickery. If you’re seeking an adventurous change of pace, visit Griffin Bike Park. More of a cinematic mastermind? The best spot in town to watch a good movie is The Moon Lite Drive-In. It shows new movies all the time.
Don’t take our word for it, hear from a current ISU student, Julia Pomfret:
With move in coming up and family weekend occurring this fall, just know, this is just hitting the surface on your epic guide to College Town USA. Check out See You In Terre Haute for lodging, playing and planning.
That being said, welcome back to College Town USA students, family and friends!
