Supporting Nontrads In Their Journey

"Success has nothing to do with what you gain in life or accomplish for yourself. It's what you do for others."  ~Danny Thomas

Nontraditional Students face many challenges when trying to balance work, school, and life roles. Many students also face challenges with transportation, time management when caring for aging parents, and their own health-related challenges. Their stories are great and many! As a part of nontraditional students' support network, it is our commitment to provide support any way that we can, even if it means bringing awareness to some of the challenges that nontrads face.
