FASE Peer Mentor Call-Out
Tuesday, February 12, 6:30-7:30 pm
IMU Dogwood Room
FASE is a campus organization for students, by students.  That means that there are students who help run this organization by mentoring other students.  We are actively looking for those student mentors.  An ideal candidate is a current freshman who has the potential to mentor next year as a sophomore and in their remaining years at IUB.  However, we accept--and currently have--mentors from all different majors, interests and ages.  If you are interested in mentoring freshman--whether it be in academics, their social life at IU or with advice in how to succeed in college--and building your resume, then contact the Office of Mentoring Services & Leadership Development to learn more.

FASFA Information Session
Monday, February 21, 5-6 pm
Eigenmann Hall Game Room

In order to receive your 21st Century Scholarship, you and your parents must file your FASFA by March 10 and make all corrections/updates by May 15. Missing these deadlines is one of the most common reasons that 21st Century Scholars lose their Scholarships. For this information session, professionals from the Office of Student Financial Assistance (OSFA) will provide you with step by step instructions for completing your FASFA, and help you avoid common errors students commit while completing their FASFAs.
