About Indianapolis

Indianapolis is the 13th largest city in United States, with a growing downtown region that's been called one of the country's best by Forbes Magazine. The revitalized downtown area features retail shops, more than 35 hotels, hundreds of restaurants, theaters, sports venues, art galleries, and parks.

The city's largest business sectors are health care, manufacturing, social services, and retail. Companies including Eli Lilly and Company, Brightpoint, hhgregg, Republic Airways Holdings, Simon Property Group, Roche Diagnostics, and Conseco are some of the region's biggest employers. Local companies that hire graduates of The Art Institute of Indianapolis include Tribune Company/Fox 59, The Adidas Group, Hatworld/Lids, Gannett, Motionwear, Meridian Hills Country Club, and Bradley and Montgomery.

The growth in Indianapolis has led to an expansion of the city's cultural districts—all six of them—Broad Ripple Village, Massachusetts Avenue, Foundation Square, The Wholesale District, Canal and White River State Park, and Indiana Avenue. The rich diversity of these six districts allows students to experience theaters, performing arts, museums, and galleries.

Outdoors enthusiasts enjoy the city's warm summers by visiting the region's many parks, while winter sports fans stay warm cheering on the Indianapolis Colts during football season. The NBA's Indiana Pacers are a perennial favorite, as well. And motorsports fans flock to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to catch the Indianapolis 500.
