The CUPPA Not So Much Block Party 8.21.14July 18, 2014
Join us for the first CUPPA Not So Much Block* But Still A Party! Hosted by UPPSA, PASA, and SUPA! (hamburgers, veggie burgers, salads, mac&cheese, cash bar, music, and fun!) Thursday, August 21, 2014 5 p.m. Jak’s Tap, 901 W. Jackson, Chicago * Since 2009, through combined efforts of the CUPPA student groups, college and department staff, a block party extravaganza has been held on Peoria Street in front of CUPPA Hall after the August New Student Orientations. Because of certain limitations posed by the Circle Interchange construction (see www.utc.uic.edu), the party has been renamed (hopefully for one year only) and relocated to Jak’s Tap. Don’t let the construction or inconvenience hold you back. A good time is promised for many. See you there!
"Because of my interest in improving the human condition through public service, I chose to enter the MPA program at UIC. Chicago, rich in history, diversity, and politics, is the perfect place to learn about all aspects of public administration. For my Capstone team project, I was provided the opportunity to collaborate with a nonprofit organization on the West Side of Chicago to develop a training and professional development curriculum. As Public Service Chair of PASA, I have volunteered alongside many of my colleagues in different service projects in the Chicagoland area. I like how this MPA program provides opportunities for students to interact with each other in the classroom and outside the classroom environment. It is a flexible program that enables students working full-time the ability to take classes at night. I would highly recommend the MPA program at UIC to prospective students."
