"Native and looking for a home and community while at school? Non-Native and looking for a way to be involved through education and community events with Indigenous folx? The Native American Student Association is a great way to be a part of IU and Bloomington's Native community. It certainly was a second home for me, and it helped me to feel a sense of community that I didn't feel as much at my undergraduate institution. " -Ayoka Wicks, graduate student, member.

"Latinos Unidos at Indiana University (LUIU) is the longest-running Latinx organization on IU's campus, so that's definitely what drew my attention to join. I've been a part of this club since my first year, and it's become a family. Our members come from different backgrounds, yet we're all able to relate to each other anyway. I found the organization to be a great first step when it came to getting to know the Latinx community on campus and finding my own community." Evelyn Sanchez, junior, co-president.
