campusLink bus campusLink Route Shrinks; Discount Citilink Passes Available

Because of low ridership, the campusLink bus route will change for the coming school year. Although the regular blue Citilink bus routes serving campus will continue as they have in the past, the green campusLink busses will now only run between the Ivy Tech campuses. There will be no campusLink stops on the IPFW campus.


The new campusLink route will run one bus directly between the Ivy Tech Coliseum Campus and the Ivy Tech North Campus locations. The bus will stop at student housing on the Waterfield Campus on request.


Discount Citilink bus passes will still be available at the Bursar. Students, faculty, and staff can purchase passes at a 10 percent discount.

Fitness Events at Summerfest

Rise and shine and enjoy a two-mile Nature's Delight Walk/Run Wednesday, July 29, at 7 a.m. during Summerfest. The check-in table will be at the Walb Student Union west entrance. That afternoon, plan to do a one-mile or half-mile Garden Stroll any time between noon and 3 p.m. Before starting, stop by the tea party check-in table near the Walb Union Lounge and pick up a trivia card. Pre-registration is preferred for both of these fitness events, but it's not required.
