Welcome to February!

In addition to prolonged winter weather (sorry) and Valentine's Day, February means IUPUI Homecoming! The Office of Student Involvement (OSI) hopes that you will consider getting involved with this year's festivities. 

Homecoming Week begins with the men's basketball game on Saturday, February 22nd and concludes with the women's game on Saturday, March 1st. Throughout the week, there are a variety of contests and performances in which you have the opportunity to participate.

OSI especially wants to encourage your unit to participate in two competitions - Deck Out Your Space and Can the Dean. The application deadline for both of these events is Friday, February 14th.

Black History Month Fact
This Black History Month, we seek to highlight African Americans with disabilites who've pioneered in disability rights and activism:

Frederick Carlton "Carl" Lewis is an American former track and field athlete and United Nations Goodwill Ambassador, who won 10 Olympic medals including 9 gold, and 10 World Championships medals, including 8 gold.

What many people don't know about Carl Lewis is he also had a Learning Disorder. Regardless of his diagnosis, he never let it "slow him down".

Remember the 48 Hour Rule!!!

Schedule your tests early!

Remember there are several factors you need to take into account when scheduling your tests for Finals Week. For instance:
  • We have a 48 Hour Advanced Notice policy, which means you must give us two business days’ notice before your test is to be proctored when scheduling an exam. So if you schedule a test on Friday, it won't be entered for Monday.
  • Window Tests must be scheduled Monday- Thursday before 5 pm and Fridays before 3 pm. No window exams will be scheduled for a weekend. Only departmental finals will be proctored on Saturday and Sunday during Finals.
  • Take advantage of convenient options! You can schedule in person, online through our website or immediately after your last exam over in the lab. If you know when you’re test is, there’s no excuse to wait until the last minute to schedule it.
