Iced coffee. Custom blended drinks. Smoothies. Flaky and delicious bakery items. Espresso. Nitro cold brew. Behind every successful college student is a substantial amount of caffeine!
Before heading to class, be sure to swing by the Ground Up Café, the coffeehouse on campus at Indiana University Kokomo! Located in the Kelley Center near the parking office and IUPD-Kokomo, it’s never been easier to grab a treat and a caffeine boost.
How We Got Our Name
“During my first year, I noticed that students come from all walks of life. We all have different struggles and backgrounds yet we all start at the same level—ground level. Throughout my time at IU Kokomo, I have worked my way up towards my goals and have seen others do the same. IUK students work from the Ground...Up.” – Ciara Stout, Winner of the Naming Contest
