IVSP Experience: IVSP is a life-altering program that drastically changed mine for the better while at UMD. It's an inclusive platform for students to explore their passions and goals in school and in life without limitations that a more structured major might include. Just as vital to IVSP's success are the caring and helpful advisors who clearly and concisely take you through every step of the process. Those who have been so lucky to make it through the process know that the aid doesn't stop there. For example, there are constantly scholarships and internship opportunities thrown our way . Thanks to IVSP, I'll be able to graduate from UMD with a degree tailored specifically to my interests, further my experience in the field of sports marketing, and realize my potential.
