Free Film and Tour at Jimmy Stewart Museum

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Thanks to the work of English Dept. graduate student Julia Grove and the generosity Jimmy Stewart Museum director Tim Harley, IUP's Center for Film Studies is able to offer the following opportunity for all faculty and students this Thursday evening, Sept. 27.


The Museum is graciously waving the admission fee (though donations are very much appreciated) and providing an engaging tour of the Museum to participants at 6:00pm, followed by a showing of Harvey
which will begin at 7:00pm. 

This is a great opportunity to check out the Jimmy Stewart Museum, watch a classic and quirky movie (which centers around Jimmy Stewart's interactions with his 6'3'' imaginary rabbit friend, Harvey), and have some great critical discussion following the film in a relaxed and open atmosphere. Hope to see you there!


Check out the trailer for Harvey at IMBd.

Stay tuned for information about Brandon Galm's presentation of Eraserhead in the Allegheny Room on October 25 and Meg Oldman's presentation of Sucker Punch, also in the Allegheny Room, on November 


Thank you for your time, and we'd appreciate any further suggestions for film showings or events that you'd like to see.

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Hello Kevin,

My name is Devin, I am one of the Department Mentors (ASM) in Northern Hall. I am going to be forming a study group for the building for residents to get help with their classes. I would like to have Mentors and Tutors present to help the residents with their classes. Could you send this e-mail to the upperclassmen in the Honors College? I'd like to have them help with this and we can give them community service hours for their aid. I will be holding a meeting with all prospective Mentors and Tutors on Saturday, September 22nd at 4PM in the fourth floor lounge of Northern to go over expectations and the group constitution.

Here is a list of the departments I would like a few mentors in each of the following departments:
- Math
- Sciences
- Psychology
- Safety Sciences
- Nursing

I would also like to have mentors from other departments to aid any resident who does not fall into these areas. I would like to have a nice mix of about 20 Mentors, if anyone is interested or has questions they can e-mail me at

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

RAINN: The Rape Abuse Incest National Network is the largest anti-sexual assault organization in the U.S. The Haven Project at IUP is sponsoring RAINN Day on Thursday, September 27, 2012.Last year's event was a HUGE success, and with your help, we anticipate an even better event in 2012! We are asking you to partner with us to raise awareness against sexual assault on our campus. To show our gratitude, we will be giving volunteers a RAINN Day t-shirt! There are four ways to help us:

The Lively Arts is hoping to increase our list of ushers this year for the Ovations! performances by touring artists (12 shows this season).  Ushering is a volunteer activity, but a terrific way for students to earn Community Service hours, add to their resume, and see all of the shows for free!

We run a very brief, informal "New Ushers" meeting prior to the first performance so that everyone is comfortable with their responsibilities.

If interested, please contact Karen L. Mathe, Performance Services Assistant for The Lively Arts by phone at 724-357-2547 or email at

resources for finding and selecting meaningful sustained community service while in

college. Then, as per your schedule, attend the IUP community Service Fair between

interacted, providing responses to the following questions:

Workshop Schedule

Summer Community Service Clarification

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Though the annual cycle of community service during the school year begins in September and runs though May, upperclassmen may still submit up to 30 hours of summer service towards the next school year's requirement.  Remember that summer service requires pre-approval and a signed letter or email from a service supervisor to verify upon completion.

You should not expect summer service to count retroactively for the previous school year.

In addition, telecounselors are a resource for prospective students in the college selection and application process. The telecounseling process provides a human touch for prospective students, something more than information in the mail.
