Virtual Run


Health and Wellness Promotion

Download the Charity Miles App and join Health and Wellness Promotion peer educators on the first virtual run/walk competition. This race is a competition against other PASSHE schools. 

This virtual presentation will feature a special selection of works by notable woman authors from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, as well as contemporary fiction and relevant extraliterary materials. Among the texts highlighted are Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi, Monday or Tuesday by Virginia Woolf, and The Awakening by Kate Chopin. These titles are available for research in the IUP Special Collections and University Archives in the University Libraries.

"Into the Archives: Women Writers" brings together presentations by doctoral students Jamie Olrogge Polnau and Marquel Sherry, and English professors Michael Williamson and Lingyan Yang who will present on the historical and contemporary contexts of the aforementioned works in the world of women’s literature. IUP Special Collections Librarian and University Archivist, Harrison Wick, will discuss selected rare books, including titles owned by IUP’s own Jane Leonard. A founding faculty member of Indiana State Normal School (IUP), Jane Leonard held the title of Preceptress, the equivalent of the Vice President of Student Affairs, when our school was founded 145 years ago.

All are welcome to attend our virtual discussion about women writers and the rare books available for research in the IUP Special Collections and University Archives. "Into the Archives: Women Writers" is a collaborative event brought to you by the IUP Department of English and the University Libraries. For more information and to pre-register for this Zoom event, please contact Harrison Wick at hwick@iup.edu.

Netflix Watch Party: “The Lorax” and “The Grinch” (Virtual)

Netflix Watch Party Chrome Extension

Student Cooperative

NWP: Lorax and Grinch newOn Thursday, December 3, STATIC hosts a Netflix Watch Party double feature with The Lorax and The Grinch! Event begins at 8:00 p.m.

In The Lorax, "twelve-year-old Ted (Zac Efron) lives in a place virtually devoid of nature; no flowers or trees grow in the town of Thneedville. Ted would very much like to win the heart of Audrey (Taylor Swift), the girl of his dreams, but to do this, he must find that which she most desires: a Truffula tree. To get it, Ted delves into the story of the Lorax (Danny DeVito), once the gruff guardian of the forest, and the Once-ler (Ed Helms), who let greed overtake his respect for nature."

In The Grinch, "the Grinch (Benedict Cumberbatch) and his loyal dog, Max, live a solitary existence inside a cave on Mount Crumpet. His main source of aggravation comes during Christmastime when his neighbours in Whoville celebrate the holidays with a bang. When the Whos decide to make Christmas bigger and brighter, the disgruntled Grinch realizes there is one way to gain peace and quiet. With help from Max, the green grump hatches a scheme to pose as Santa Claus, steal Christmas, and silence the Whos' holiday cheer once and for all."

Watch via Google Chrome's Netflix Watch Party extension, available here! Must have a Netflix account, but you can sign-up for a free 30-day trial!

STATIC will ask various pieces of Dr. Seuss universe trivia, with the winner taking home some amazing prizes.
