IU Northwest Office of Diversity Programming's New Student Success Program

IU Northwest’s Office of Diversity Programming invites new students to learn about resources that can help them succeed in their respective programs at a series of New Student Success Program (NSSP) Brown Bag Forums.

At 12 p.m., Wednesday, Jan. 11 in Hawthorn Hall (107), Davetta Haywood of Student Support Services will speak on effective note-taking.

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

Future NSSP Brown Bag Forum topics include a financial aid discussion on Wednesday, Feb. 15 with Harold Burtley of Financial Aid and Test Anxiety with Counselor Barbara Bullock on Wednesday, March 21. The topic for the April 15 session is not yet determined.

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.

For more information about the Brown Bag Forums, contact James Wallace, Office of Diversity Programming at (219) 980-6601.
