Here are some fun pages to explore from different colleges this week.
Information Pages March 08
Georgia - Reinhardt College in Waleska, Georgia has a nice web page that welcomes nontraditional students. These kinds of pages are becoming the norm, even in schools that don't have a Nontraditional Student Group yet. Reinhardt's Resource Guide describes a Commuter Lounge and educational workshops, among other links.
Minnesota - Ridgewater College (2 campuses - in Willmar and Hutchinson) has a page that features a "connections" program. This program features networking, seminars, events, and activities for non-traditional students. There are two people listed that students can contact. You can also watch a movie called Nontraditional Careers for women on the page. Links here include Child Care, Housing, and more.
Groups for March 08
Texas - Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas has a Nontraditional Student Group called the NTSO. They have a great website featuring photos,
events, a Facebook Group, and links to local resources. They are an active group this yeaer.
Missouri - Missouri Western University in Sts. Joseph, Missouri has a Non-traditional student group that is active and meets monthly. It is called the NTSA Club. The web page features photos of members at the left side that moves around like a slide show.
The University has a lounge area for the group on campus complete with computers and printers, a refrigerator and microwave nearby, and a sofa and chairs. The students have five officers plus an advisor.
The Moon and the Willow Tree
The University also has a great information page for Nontraditional students on the site.
Wyoming - The University of Wyoming at Laramie has a page for its Non-Traditional Student Council. This description is from their website:
NTSC is a volunteer student organization that works to insure non-traditional students achieve success at the University of Wyoming.
The group meets weekly, and also helps each other during finals. They also have formed interest groups for veterans, a dinner group, people who like theater, and more. What a great idea!
