Six O’Clock Series

The Six O’Clock Series provides IUP students, employees, and community members an opportunity to learn about current issues and approach familiar topics from a new perspective.

Programs occur on Monday evenings at 6:00 p.m. in the Ohio Room of the Hadley Union Building, unless noted otherwise. Programs end at 7:30 p.m.

All lectures are free and available to the public as well as the campus community. The lectures are targeted to an audience of college students and employees so all topics may not be appropriate for children.

The Six O’Clock Series was featured in the IUP Around the Oak Grove blog. Read more at From Autism to the Real Gidget: Six O’Clock Series Has It All.
