    Region Description:

    Indianapolis is among the 20 largest cities in the United States and the capital and economic hub of Indiana. Here you’ll find the headquarters of Fortune 500 companies, state and federal government offices, major health care systems, and half a dozen professional sports teams. More than 26 million people visit the Circle City each year, and it hosts over 600 conventions annually. IUPUI is blocks from all that downtown Indianapolis has to offer. Indianapolis is large enough to play host to the Indianapolis 500 (the largest single-day sporting event in the world), the 2012 Super Bowl, the world’s largest children’s museum, the Heartland Film Festival, Black Expo, the Circle City Classic, and Indy Jazz Fest. And, Indy is small enough to personify small-town charm, with flavorful cultural districts, shopping, recreation, and a strong sense of community.
