I am saddened to inform you of the sudden loss of Christina Arroyo,
a member of the Office of International Education. Ms. Arroyo, who
started work at IUP in November 2010, was the international student
and scholar advisor. She was a graduate of IUP, earning a bachelor of arts degree in
international studies/political science in 2001, a master of arts
degree in public affairs in 2008, and a second bachelor’s degree in
Spanish in 2010.
If you are in contact with students who are struggling with this
loss, please let them know they can speak with a counselor by
calling 724-357-2621 or by visiting the Counseling Center
in the Center for Health and Well-Being, Suites on Maple East.
Walk-in hours at the Counseling Center are Monday, Tuesday,
Thursday, and Friday from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. and Wednesday from 9:30
to 11:30 a.m. Counselors will be available for crisis appointments
and consultation and to offer guidance and support during difficult
times. Members of the IUP Interfaith Council
also are available to talk with those in need of support.
