Welcome to IU! You’re welcome to take a look at our Chinese Language courses. You’re welcome to join our Chinese Flagship Program which provides you two free study-abroad opportunities and a guaranteed internship in China!
Xiang Lyu, Lecturer in Chinese Language

Your class has seen historic challenges, with disruptions to your senior year, including proms, commencements, and even more profound disruptions and sometimes greater challenges. The start to your first year at IU will be nonstandard, too. It's not always fun to live through history, but it is certainly interesting. Hopefully, with the support of good science, medicine and technology, civic awareness and responsibility and good spirits, we will get past these great challenges, and have a more traditional end to your first year. That is our hope. Now, however, I want to join all of us here at Indiana University welcoming you to our tradition of excellence. I am so pleased you are going to be with us, for this next chapter of your life. You will be changed as a result, in a good way. I teach students in their first classes, and their last classes, and it is a joy to celebrate your accomplishment at the end, even as it is a pleasure to welcome you at this first step in your journey. Congratulations on every success so far, and on your perseverance; it will serve you well! And if you have any questions, the answer may well be in the syllabus ; ). Welcome, class of 2024!
Lisa Thomassen, Senior Lecturer in Psychological and Brain Sciences

A warm and hearty welcome to the Class of 2024! We are so glad to have you with us as you begin your collegiate journey. Take advantage of all IU has to offer--don't be shy! You will be glad you did. Let the journey begin!
Candis Smith, Lecturer in African American and African Diaspora Studies

Dear Class of 2024, You are the special class that will benefit from IU’s amazing ability to offer you a great residential experience as well as great online education. Think of it as a way to look at the future: a mix of the best solutions. Wearing a face mask and respecting social distancing does not mean not to enjoy our wonderful campus and its facilities: to the contrary, it allows you to explore and enjoy the campus as much as you want, and in a safe manner. IU is a world-class institution which offers a global education, and the Hutton Honors College is the place where interdisciplinary and international meet. We are open for business! Welcome!
