    Raven Sams was well prepared when she graduated from IUP’s Eberly College of Business, completing three majors and two summer internships in five years. Raven’s broad knowledge of finance, accounting, and international business was too hard to let go of—she was offered a full-time position at her internship site.

    Adam Young is a safety science major who has turned education into action, living at the Indiana Fire Association firehouse at no cost in return for his dedication in responding to overnight fire calls and help with basic maintenance tasks.

    Meet Howie Begosa, a communications media graduate who minored in dance and now works in graphic design. Howie credits IUP’s small class size, attentive faculty mentors, and active engagement with landing his dream job at Disney.
