Adding XY Data from Excel is not displaying Correctly

I am trying to show XY data in my map.  I have a list of coordinates for parking lots, and they are in an excel file.  I have tried adding them into ArcMap, and then right-clicking to display XY data.  once I go through the dialog boxes, the points are displaying one on top of the other, in the the middle of the United States, and they are all stacked one on top of the other.  I have about 215 different points that need to be projected on the Indiana University campus in Bloomington Indiana.  I have attached the excel file (which is saved as a .csv file).  Also, I have attached what happens when I display the XY data (basemap added to see locations).

I have been searching and searching for an answer to this problem, and can't seem to find anything.  Any help to get this sorted would be greatly appreciated!  I'm about to pull my hair out because I thought this would be easy to do rather than having to start an editing session in my shapefile and input each one indvidually.
