Assembly Hall (Helen Fields)
Backstory and Context
Assembly Hall. Wow what a place. With a history that started in 1892 with the first IU gym, everything has just built up to the Assembly Hall we know and love now. As education and students at Indiana University evolved, so did Assembly Hall and the basketball/athletics program. There were obviously ups and downs along the way and there still are, but it has led to where we are now. At this point, Indiana University has one of the best college education programs and one of the best college athletics and basketball programs in the country if not the world. To this day every time I walk into Assembly Hall I can feel the history and the glory of it all around me. It is one of my favorite places in the whole world.
