Suggestions for Success

Stay in Touch with Your Advisor
Stop in the department office, meet Ms. Jolene Campbell (the department secretary), say hello to the department chairman, and meet your advisor. If you can’t find your advisor because of conflicting schedules, leave a message.  Your advisor will return your call and schedule a meeting that is convenient for both of you. Remember, advisors can help with all types of questions.
Make a Commitment to Achieve Academic Success 
Go to class, complete your assignments, and ASK FOR HELP WHEN YOU NEED IT! If you are having difficulty with any class, talk with your professor, go the scheduled study sessions the professor may offer, and take advantage of the various learning assistance programs on campus. Tutors from the Learning Center and the Writing Center can be very helpful throughout the semester.
Get Involved in Campus Activities
Whether it’s sporting events, art shows, concerts, lectures, student government or clubs and organizations, plan some time to have fun!
The Student Chapter of the American Society of Safety Engineers is the pre-professional organization for Safety Sciences students. IUP has an active student chapter in which members are involved in social and service projects, and informative programs and opportunities for interaction with safety majors across the state and country. There is an expectation that all Safety Sciences majors should be active members of ASSE. The benefits of membership significantly assist students with career development.

Learn about the IUP campus community, too.
