Visit Indy‘s tourism-touting ‘NDY’ sculpture arrived on campus today, heralding the approach of TEDxIndianapolis on Oct. 20. The first in line to shoot photos were senior Nursing majors, already decked out in their scrubs for official licensure exam photos.

UIndy is the first Southside location for the popular social media campaign, which asks passers-by to share photos with the hashtag #LoveIndy. On campus, participants are invited to declare their Greyhound allegiance with #LoveUIndy.
