Tibetan Monks to Visit IUP

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
mandala is an abstract representation of the universe.  The monks will work more
than 40 hours on the mandala, pouring thousands of grains of colored sand to
complete the design.  Once the mandala is done on Oct. 31, it will be left on
display for an hour and then swept up.  The group will also perform a concert of
Tibetan music and dance on the evening of Oct. 29.

First Wednesday Freshman Workshop Tomorrow

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
3 service hours. Attending all sessions and assignments will equal 30
community service hours this semester, half of what is required.

Tomorrow’s session is an overview of the CHC Social Service program.
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
Indiana community.

You can access the fall schedule for the workshops at http://www.iup.edu/honors/page.aspx?id=96931.

An overview of tomorrow’s session can be found at http://www.iup.edu/honors/page.aspx?id=113321.

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.

Let me know if you have questions.
