On April 10, the Hamilton Lugar School community came together to celebrate IU Day! As the university's official day of giving, we wanted to put our focus on thanking the people who make so many things possible for our students, faculty, and staff. How'd we make it happen? A t-shirt giveaway, of course! Any community member who wrote a thank you card to a donor received a limited edition Hamilton Lugar School Cycling Team t-shirt. (Sorry, but we don't have a real cycling team.) What follows is just a handful of the opportunities that you've made possible. We also invite you to check out our Facebook photo gallery for a closer look at IU Day in the Global and International Studies Building.

If you've ever wondered about benefits to joining a language flagship program, look to Hamilton Lugar School students Nora Zing and Andrew Fluegel.
