If you’re an IU student, you have one of the best college perks ever: IUware. Indiana University has promotional deals with a multitude of companies that enable them to offer their students loads of free software. EndNote and Microsoft Office are nice resources, but the real deal comes in the form of Adobe Creative Suite 6, which includes Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Bridge, and Dreamweaver among other programs, and Adobe Lightroom 4.
