First-Year Experience

Start your journey on the right foot

It’s a whole new world going from high school to college, but when you start your journey at IUPUC, you’ll make the transition on the right foot.

That’s what IUPUC’s First Year Experience is all about. It’s a joint effort of various programs and departments dedicated to helping you step into your new season here through community events, helpful guidance, and academic assistance.

Your First Year Experience begins with Pride Friday, where you’ll get acquainted with your fellow classmates, faculty, and staff while discovering all your IUPUC experience has to offer like:

  • Research projects with faculty mentors
  • Study abroad trips
  • Student clubs and organizations
  • Service learning projects
  • Club sports and intramurals
  • Student government
