IUP Student Section Update

After a fun-filled, busy, successful spring semester, we would like to take a moment to thank the donors of the ASSP WPA scholarships and congratulate those that received scholarships through this organization. Chloe Croft and Madison Piatak received these honors for the 2021-2022 school year. 

A few other students received scholarships outside of the organization and did research on a few topics throughout the year. Not only have these students received scholarly honors, but they were also busy building connections in the field of safety by welcoming safety professionals into the classrooms to give presentations on topics ranging from interview skills to safety topics. Students also participated in a Safety Sciences Career Fair held in September in which companies from all over the country were gathered to recruit EHS students for either full-time employment, internships, or co-ops. The career fair was successful as many students obtained an internship/job for the spring semester or summer. Towards the end of the semester, the officers put together a Safety Sciences clothing sale in which nearly 160 pieces of clothing were sold and the proceeds went towards Rho Sigma Kappa and the ASSP Student Sections.

We hope to launch many more clothing sales in the semesters to come and welcome many more guest speakers into the walls of Johnson Hall!
