    Care at the Center for Health and Well-Being at 3:00 p.m.

    Mapping your IUP Career Game Plan at 4:00 p.m.
    We want students to start thinking about their career goals sooner rather than later because we know that it helps them to find success in college and ensures that once they graduate, they know what happens next. That’s why we at the IUP Career and Professional Development Center have developed a Career Game Plan, which is a checklist of activities to complete from the start of a student’s first semester on campus to when they join the ranks of IUP alumni. Attendees in this session will learn about the services/programs available to students to help them make the transition from college to the professional world of work as seamless as possible.

    Stay connected by visiting the Parent Resource page for additional information from our experts. Parent Transition Guides have been mailed to each family and can serve as a resources guide as you find answers to many of your question and learn how we will support your student as he or she strives to achieve their collegiate goals.
