In addition, IUP Day allows for each recognized student organization to increase awareness of its mission and potentially its membership base. As a result, students gain a clear sense of the IUP community and the opportunities available through the recognized campus organizations, clubs, and activities.
IUP Day showcases recognized campus organizations that plan small events and/or activities to engage those students who attend. In previous years, events have included a fencing display by the IUP Fencing Club, a cornhole tournament with members of Phi Kappa Psi, and a stepshow organized by the members of Alpha Phi Alpha.
IUP Day 2016 is being planned by a group of students from across the university. Together, they are planning activities, music, give-aways, food, entertainment, and more. Recognized organizations can register for the event through the Crimson Connect page.
The event will take place on Friday, September 9, between 3:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. (Participating organizations should plan to arrive by 2:15 p.m. to set up.)
