on completing another semester at IUP!
We know that
this time of year can be very stressful. There is the busyness and pressures of
finals, perhaps an uncertainty of what next steps to take in your academic
career, and saying goodbye to friends who are graduating. As you prepare for and
complete your finals, take advantage of events to “de-stress” offered by
various IUP organizations. Relax when you can, and work to keep a balance of study,
fun, and rest.
This is an
exciting time, especially for those of you who are graduating. We want you to
celebrate your accomplishments and successes, and to make positive and
long-lasting memories of IUP with friends. As you do so, think carefully about
your decisions and your actions. Make choices that keep you safe and well, that
show respect for our community, and that will make you, your family and friends,
and your university, proud—now, and in the years to come.
have been many happy times during this past semester, there have also been sadness
and loss. Sometimes, during times of stress and change, you may feel
overwhelmed. If you need help, let us know. Talk to us, and talk to each other.
We see you stepping up to support one another as a community in the IUP Way,
and for that, we thank you.
for a successful finals week and for a pleasant summer.
