  • “As a graduate of IUP’s Geography and Regional Planning Department, I find myself prepared for anything the world throws at me! My degree lets me work in diverse fields and I feel comfortable about my abilities because of the knowledge and skills I obtained through my studies.

    “But the best thing about the Geography Department was the close-knit, caring environment that provided guidance and support throughout my academic career. I was surrounded by professors who care, not only about my academic performance, but also my personal goals and interests. Many afternoons I spent having the ‘What to do With My Life’ talk with many of my professors . . . and they always had time and advice to give!”
