It’s time to begin preparing your organization for the next school year! There are two exciting opportunities for every student organization to take part in the first weekend of our fall semester. The first is Bear Path. This is a symbolic walk for all incoming students as they leave New Student Convocation and walk towards the Plaster Student Union for New Student Festival. Started in 2012, this event has great potential to develop into an ongoing tradition that incoming students look forward to as we create more school pride and a sense of community for everyone. This leads our incoming students straight to New Student Festival. At this event every registered organization can set up a booth to reach students with information about their student organization. This has become one of the greatest tools for recruiting incoming students. Registration will remain open throughout the summer until capacity has been reached or when the deadline approaches of Friday, August 9th. Don’t miss out on these great opportunities to promote your student organization to our incoming students!

This year, the iPALs have assisted with campus and community wide events such as International Education Week, International Student Orientations, and monthly immersion trips.
