IU Northwest New Student Success Program

Indiana University Northwest’s New Student Success Program invites new students to learn about resources that can help them succeed in their respective programs at a series of brown bag forums.

On Wednesday, Oct. 12, Barbara Bullock, LCSW, Director of the IU Northwest Counseling Center, will present “Conquering Test Anxiety.” The forum, scheduled for 12 to 1 p.m. in Hawthorn Hall, room 107, will cover such topics as identifying the causes and symptoms of test anxiety, avoiding stress through preparation, study tips, the role of exercise in reducing test anxiety and finally, how to combat test anxiety through familiarity.

Students are invited to bring their lunches and settle in for an informal discussion with their peers, staff and faculty members.

Established in 2009, the NSSP places participating students in a cohort of their freshman peers. Those students learn together by taking many of their required freshman courses together. The program also provides peer and faculty mentors who form a reliable social network, helping students navigate the many challenges that arise during freshman year.

The next Brown Bag Forum, scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 16, will focus on Effective Time Management, also facilitated by Bullock. The forums take place monthly and cover a different topic related to student success.

For more information about the Brown Bag Forums, contact James Wallace, NSSP Coordinator, at (219) 980-6601.
