VINCENNES UNIVERSITY

Red Skelton Performing Arts Center

1002 North First Street, Vincennes 812.888.8888 www.vinu.edu

Indiana’s first college, Vincennes University is a top choice for students seeking quality, value, a wide range of academic programs, and the chance to engage in campus life. From its earliest days in 1801 on the Indiana frontier, VU has been a trailblazer in higher education and was among the first to initiate the two-year college model. Beyond diverse associate degrees, today’s VU also offers select baccalaureate degree programs in high-demand fields such as technology, nursing, law enforcement, and education. The 200-acre Vincennes Campus features some of the state’s most modern academic and recreational facilities, located adjacent to major historic sites such as the 1804 home of VU’s founder, William Henry Harrison, 9th President of the United States. Within a short stroll are the Indiana Territory Capitol, where Harrison served as Governor, and a replica of Jefferson Academy, VU’s predecessor. As a state-supported college, VU features the most affordable tuition among all Indiana residential campuses, and its residence hall rates are also among the lowest in the state. Comparing both features and costs, students find their dollars go farther at VU, without sacrificing quality. A state leader in bridging the skills gap, VU is recognized for its focus on student success, beginning with personal instruction, easy access to tutoring and academic support services, and internships that build relations with potential employers. A new student center, Jefferson Union, opened in 2015 and nearby is the new $27 million Updike Hall, home of the College of Science, Engineering, and Mathematics. The Campus also includes the Red Skelton Performing Arts Center, cited as one of the Top 25 Most Amazing University Performing Arts Centers, and the adjoining Red Skelton Museum of American Comedy. New recreational opportunities are available thanks to the opening of the revitalized Kimmell Park, a $2.5 million VU project that will serve the community. Located adjacent to VU, along the legendary Wabash River, the park provides a great vista of the legendary river.
