The IUP Learning Commons is looking forward to the inaugural Fall Fest: Patio Party, on Wednesday, 13 September from 11am-2pm on the Stabley Patio. Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with the following IUP departments: Career and Professional Development Center (CPDC), Libraries, University College, and Writing Center

Attendees will be able to stop by various tables to meet members of the departments housed in the Learning Commons, hear about the programs and services that they offer, and understand how they can help you to achieve your academic and career goals. There will be food and lots of giveaways!

Kelsey Thompson, Associate Director of the IUP CPDC, is excited to kick off the fall semester with a new event that involves collaboration across multiple departments.  "I am looking forward to Fall Fest and believe it will be a great way to kick off the fall 2023 semester. Our team, as well as the other departments, are looking forward to meeting students so that we can share how the IUP Learning Commons partners can support them throughout their time at IUP and find their success thereafter. We have a fun afternoon planned full of giveaways and free food – come and see us!”
