iPals Vision Statement

iPals is a base for social operations. It is a club where we can meet people, share experiences together, and invite people into our lives. It is where friendships start - but not where they end. It is where we keep coming back together to debrief experiences and to deepen our friendships.

We want our members to be involved in those activities and clubs on campus that are of interest to them and to share those interests back with the club.

Invite us to your performance! Tell us about your thesis presentation! Ask us for help when you need to go to the bank!

And also mourn with us when your pet passes away. Destress with us when you finish your midterm. Process with us when your roommate frustrates you.
