Visit Indy’s tourism-touting “ndy” sculpture arrived to herald the approach of the fourth annual TEDxIndianapolis conference, which came to campus on October 20. TEDx featured 16 creative thinkers from around the world who spoke on the theme “Keep It Simple.”

UIndy was the first Southside location for the popular social media campaign, which asks passers-by to share photos with the hashtag #LoveIndy. On campus, participants were invited to declare their Greyhound allegiance with #LoveUIndy. For more on TEDx at UIndy and links to YouTube, visit
