National Nontraditional Student Week
National Nontraditional Student Week is a nation-wide week of appreciation for nontraditional students and their dedication to education. At the beginning of November each year, campuses across the country show their dedication to helping nontraditional students become more visible within the community of university and college life. Nontraditional students vary, but most often they are adult, commuter or transfer students that are over the age of 25, oftentimes returning to school while working, raising children, or serving in the military for an extended period of time.
Here at EIU, we take the week of Nontraditional Student Week and fill it with fun and exciting activities show our appreciation for all that they do. In years past, the week has featured pizza parties, movie screenings for families and their children, cookies and coffee in the Bridge Lounge, and many more activities. We hope to keep the tradition of National Nontraditional Student Week as lively as the last for many years to come.
