Posted on 3/13/2013 10:35:13 AM

Successful sophomore members of the IUP Bridge Program shared their experience, strength, and hope in the transitioning process from IUP Punxsutanwey to the IUP Indiana campus in the Fall semester—with an emphasis on smart strategies for academic and social survival.

On March 12, 2013, at the IUP Punxsutawney campus, Kendia Canada (Communications Media), Shelae Davenport (Business), Chasity Schreckengost (Sociology), Porche Smith (Nursing), and Megan Uplinger (Sociology) presented their insights on navigating the highs and lows of scheduling, campus living, and academic culture with students currently enrolled at IUP Punxsutawney. The point of the evening's activities was to give special insights from the student perspective to first-year student on how to survive the critical sophomore year.

Judith Villa and Rosalee Stilwell, codirectors of the IUP Bridge Program and members of the English Department, along with Dani Cypher (English master’s program), coordinated the event.
