Ten Buddhist monks who specialize in Tibetan visual
and performing arts will be at IUP Oct. 24 - Oct. 31. This group has traveled throughout the United States creating such
mandalas at universities and top museums, including the Smithsonian
(monk-artists from the same organization came to IUP in 2003 and 2006). A

The first of ten Wednesday Freshman Workshops will run from 11am to 12
pm in the Great Hall tomorrow. The rationale for this program is
simple, "What should you know in your first semester about CHC and IUP
to use college well over the next four years?"
Each workshop and the assignment that grows out of it will count for

Though social service is required of all who receive a CHC or IUP
scholarship, it is essential for every student to commit to something
larger than themselves in college. This program will acquaint you with
all the resources to find sustained meaningful service at IUP and in the
I realize some of you will not be able to attend due to a science
lab, ROTC or a music practice. Please let me know if you cannot make it
tomorrow due to a permanent schedule conflict on Wednesdays and I'll
schedule a meeting to discuss how to proceed.
