IUC is surrounded by the architectural beauty of Columbus, Indiana on a fifteen acre campus. The school of just over a thousand embraces collaborative ways of thinking that attract exceptional students and faculty for ten Bachelor’s Degree programs and three Master’s Degree programs.

The Indiana University – Columbus (IUPUC, known as the Crimson Pride, competes in four intercollegiate varsity sports in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA), primarily as a member of the River States Conference (RSC) as of this school year. Men’s sports include baseball, cross country, and soccer; while women’s sports include cross country, soccer, softball, and volleyball.

When asked about his choice to play at IUC with the Crimson Pride, Broady-who will major in physical therapy-replied, “Playing baseball at the college level has always been a dream of mine. IU Columbus is a perfect fit for me. I love what Coach Bickel and Zach McClellan have started there and I’m excited to be able to help build and put my mark on this program.”

Charlestown baseball head coach Brian Hester shared his sentiments on Broady’s commitment and said, “I have had the pleasure of coaching Nick for his high school years. He has never been a player who would shy away from hard work. He has developed a passion for the game of baseball that is contagious to the ones around him. Nick’s athleticism, his core values, and his foundation of being a good person will make him very successful in whatever he pursues. I look forward to watching him grow throughout his collegiate career.”
