Legislation recreated the Seminary as Indiana College (1828) and Indiana University (1838) to teach "useful arts and sciences" and attract more students. After a fire in 1883, University Trustees purchased land northeast of here at Dunn's Woods for a new campus that would allow for development and enlargement of the University; classes began there in 1885.
