Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month

The Hispanic Heritage Council has two major events planned in October: Lunch and Learn with Hilario Molina, “How COVID-19 Exposed the Government’s Indifference toward South Texas,” and a panel discussion, “What It Means to Be Hispanic/Latinx at IUP.” Both are free and open to the community via Zoom.
State System Chancellor Dan Greenstein’s open forum is today at 2:30 p.m. on Zoom.
On September 10, this student group welcomed guest speakers Heath Winsheimer ’95, assurance partner; Ben Geraud ’17, experienced tax associate; and Lindsay Fisher, campus recruiter, from accounting company BDO. 
The coalition continues its video series in place of its monthly “Stand for Racial Justice” in front of Stapleton Library. This month’s video is a vigil to remember the many named and unnamed Black women and men killed by law enforcement. 
Although Stapleton Library’s third floor remains closed because of COVID-19 restrictions, IUP Special Collections and University Archives is open virtually and by appointment for in-person research.
This six-hour Zoom event Saturday, October 17, will provide a supportive environment to help you make progress on your thesis/dissertation writing, jump-start your process, pick up a stalled project, or build your writing skills while you’re still in coursework.
Make sure you receive maximum consideration for financial aid next year by filing your Free Application for Federal Student Aid this fall. 
Find information from IUP’s Housing office and local landlords about on- and off-campus housing options. This event will be October 5–9 on Flipgrid. 
Do you have a sexual health question that you’re too embarrassed to ask? Join Health and Wellness Promotion peer educators on Tuesday via Zoom to ask anonymously and receive answers. 


Getting Organized: Use a planner to organize your schedule. Look over each course syllabus carefully, and map out your assignments, discussions, projects, quizzes, and exams throughout the semester.
