Organization of Adult Students Informative and Supportive



OASIS is an organization that seeks to assist nontraditional students by offering resources that involve other students just like them. A nontraditional student can be many things, including adult, commuter, and transfer students that attend EIU. This group is supportive of students that are looking for help connecting with other students while they are at the university. If you are interested in joining our group through Desire2Learn, please send us a message to

We offer meetings several times a semester in order to provide students the opportunity to meet and network with other students just like them. Although you are an individual student with your own background and story, there are other students just like you that are looking to branch out and meet new people during their time at EIU.

We’re on Facebook, so you can reach us there and like our page to get up-to-date information about events that we host throughout the school year.

We also have a Student Guide to check out, which provides some basic information about OASIS and EIU.
