100% Blue

Indiana State University is proud to be the Crossroads of America — both in its location and with its student body. The institution’s history of diversity dates back to its first class in 1870. Today, State students represent every county in Indiana, more than 65 countries, rural and urban hometowns and more.

To celebrate our uniqueness, University Marketing teamed up with the Student Government Association to create “100 Percent Blue.” This project provided student volunteers the opportunity to take a DNA test to explore their ancestral background.

The students are now sharing their stories and test results with you in an effort to learn from our differences, recognize our similarities and to empower our community.
