Monumental Marathon

Saturday, November 7 will be the Monumental Marathon in downtown Indianapolis. This will cause some closures and delays in travelling to campus to enjoy the Family Weekend activities. Families are strongly encouraged to book overnight stays on the north side of Indianapolis to avoid closures downtown.
