Tippie Launch Week

Friday, January 19 - Friday, January 26, 2018

Tippie Launch Week is an entire week of events to kick off the semester and promote the many activities, organizations, and resources available to you at the Tippie College of Business. All business and pre-business students are welcome—join us to further develop your network for academic, personal, and career success.

Were you just admitted to Tippie for the spring semester?

Congratulations! Now, let us officially welcome you to the Tippie community!  

In order to make sure you get connected to the College's community and resources right away, we require all newly admitted students to attend the Tippie Launch Week Kick-off and at least one other event during Tippie Launch week. If you cannot attend the Kick-off due to a class conflict or previous commitment, contact your academic advisor ahead of time to discuss alternative options. Please note: registering for classes next semester will be contingent on successfully completing this requirement
