You're more than just a student at PETM—you're part of a tight-knit community that will encourage, inspire, and support you throughout your time at IUPUI.
The first year
When you begin your first year at IUPUI, you'll find plenty of support as you make the transition from high school to college. During the summer before your freshman year, you'll have the option to participate in Summer Bridge, a program that helps first-year students get acclimated to IUPUI.
When school starts, you'll participate in a first-year seminar that will prepare you for college life and connect you with other students in your major. You can even live with other first-year PETM students in the PETM Residential Learning Community. And of course, the PETM faculty and staff are there to help anytime.
