Indiana University is kicking off its bicentennial celebrations July 1.

The university doesn’t officially turn 200 until next year, but has celebrations planned throughout the 2020 fiscal year.

"IU officially turns 200 on January 20, 2020," says Bicentennial Project manager Jeremy Hackerd. "That is the anniversary of when Governor Jonathan Jennings signed the bill that created the State Seminary of Indiana, which is the predecessor of Indiana University."
