FORT WAYNE, Ind.—The Indiana University–Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW) Fall Bus Tour day two started with athletics and ended with a cappella. Day two stops included NCAA Headquarters, Hardin Farms, Indiana covered bridges, and a dinner at the Star Plaza Theatre in Merrillville hosted by Purdue Trustee Bruce White, founder, chairman, and CEO of White Lodging.

The highlights of the day included visiting the simulation center at NCAA's national office, taking a tour of Hardin Farms (an Indiana pig farm), and enjoying dinner with an impromptu a cappella concert by the group Gentleman's Rule, founded by Dan Ponce, the creator and first music director of Straight No Chaser.

Day three stops will include Purdue Calumet, and Zimmer in Warsaw, Ind.
