Life After IUPUI:
To help improve the senior year experience, SOAR coordinates a series of professional development events to help with the transition to "real life." Life After IUPUI is a series of seminars on life after graduation. The events — online networking, professional etiquette, financial literacy and budgeting, and relocation — hone skills in the areas most important to soon-to-be young professionals. Learn more »
Java with a Jag:
In this more intimate setting, students get a chance to sit down with alumni and ask questions about graduation, finding a job, and life in general. A group of 5-6 students will meet with alumni typically at a coffee shop in the Campus Center to open a dialogue on the future.
First held in September 2009, the Regatta quickly became an IUPUI tradition, strengthening and enhancing campus spirit and pride. Connecting campus and community, the Regatta is a weeklong family-friendly celebration in September that culminates in a canoe race and community festival. Itís also a scholarship fundraiser that benefits IUPUI students who have demonstrated exceptional leadership and academic performance. Learn more »
