Eagles Fans – don’t miss out on any of the action – head on over to the Athletics website for upcoming competitions, season standings, stats, and links to game live streams. Don’t forget to tag your social media posts with #GoPostEagles – we’ll share our favorites on the digital screens around campus, on the official Post University accounts, and in this newsletter!
Tools of the Trade: InformaCast
With InformaCast, the University will continue to send mass notification broadcasts that reach everyone with critical information through on-campus phones, personal cell phones as well as other devices like digital signage on campus. This system also offers a means of personal protection via a panic button in the InformaCast mobile app.
Main Campus students will be able to request assistance when they are in need of help directly from their mobile phones, and Post University Campus Safety will be able to see who is requesting help and their location. This functionality is similar to the Emergency Blue Light Phones located throughout our Country Club Road campus.

A Welcome Message to our Online Eagles!
With the change in season, the vibe of bac- to-school appears to be everywhere. For all of you, our incredible online students, I hope you are feeling that same exhilaration of fresh starts and/or new beginnings toward your educational goals. Whether it is your first term or your 30th, we are all here for you.
Embarking on this term, as an alum who completed my master’s degree online at Post, let me offer you three suggestions for success:
- Stay connected – Your information and support are there when you need it.
Good habits and knowing where to find answers are key to successful online learning. Read your email regularly and check the Post News feed in the mobile app. Read this newsletter, which is sent weekly via email. Communicate with your advisor and your instructor(s); they are your biggest allies.
- Get involved – Surround yourself with friends and peers.
We are always working to add events, activities, workshops, and other ways to engage our online students. We understand you may have competing priorities and commitments outside of school, but check the calendar on post.edu, and look for things to do in the social feeds in the mobile app or Facebook lounge. Students who get involved and make connections are constantly sharing with me how glad they are to have done so.
- Speak up – Use your voice to help us continue to improve.
Share your thoughts, comments, perspectives in our Mobile app and student lounge. Participate in student surveys and focus groups when they arise. Email your advisor, instructor, or an administrator if something is on your mind. Your voice is important!
May you all have an engaging, challenging, and successful term!

Scholarships are Important! Scholarships provide an opportunity for students to earn an education with assistance from an outside source. Scholarships can fill the gap. Scholarships can help decrease the amount of loans needed to complete college. Points to Remember: Be sure to review the general eligibility requirements, and the application instructions and deadline dates before submitting the application. Read more on the importance of scholarships here. To view a list of current outside scholarship opportunities, visit the additional scholarships page on our website. *Scholarship opportunities are available for those who qualify.

LIBRARY & RESEARCH SKILLS
Pep talks you didn’t know you needed…
- You don’t have to have it all figured out. Just keep showing up for each moment, each hour, and each day.
- Don’t rush, you might miss all the things you are meant to experience.
- Don’t regret anything you learned from. Lessons learned the hard way tend to have the most impact.
- People fall, just continue to be one of the ones who get back up.
- Trust that all the things you’ve experienced in life, (good and bad) can be used for your good. Don’t give up before you come up.
“Success isn’t about how your life looks like to others; it’s about how it feels to you.”
