IU Northwest New Student Success Program

Indiana University Northwest’s New Student Success Program (NSSP) 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, Nov. 16, Barbara Bullock, LCSW, Director of the IU Northwest Counseling Center, will present “Effective Time Management.” The forum, scheduled for 12 to 1 p.m. in Hawthorn Hall, room 107, will cover such topics as learning to say ‘no,’ prioritizing projects, and learning how to consolidate and delegate tasks.

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 January 11, 2012, will focus on “Effective Study Techniques,” facilitated by James Wallace, NSSP coordinator. 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 at (219) 980-6601.
