On Saturday, May 27, 2013, more than 200,000 packed the streets of downtown Indianapolis to watch the 500 Festival Parade that preluded the Indianapolis 500.
As a part of the procession, drivers waved to fans and signed autographs, marching bands performed, and many floats passed by the cheering spectators. In addition, the IUPUI cheerleaders also participated in the parade.
On September 9th, IUPUI hosted the inaugural Jaguar 5K and Mental Health Mile to raise awareness for mental health. Additionally, the event raised $3,000 for recovery scholarships. The 5K began on the Carroll Stadium track, went over the Canal, down the Fall Creek trail and back to Carroll Stadium.
IUPUI hosted the Hampton Inn Invitational Aug. 31 - Sep. 2 at the Jungle. The Jags volleyball team secured two victories over UC Riverside and Oral Roberts but fell to Eastern Illinois in four sets.
