Nontraditional Student Recognition Week to be observed at ETSU
Nontraditional students – including married adults, parents, graduate students and military veterans – are a vital part of the student body at East Tennessee State University, according to Dr. Carla Warner, ETSU director of Adult, Commuter and Transfer Services (ACTS).
And Nontraditional Student Recognition Week, a nationally celebrated university event, is paying tribute to these students with special activities today through Friday, Nov. 12. The week is co-sponsored by ACTS and the Student Government Association with assistance from nontraditional student honor societies Tau Sigma and Alpha Sigma Lambda.
Each day this week, games, story swaps and other activities are being held in the D.P. Culp University Center atrium from 11 a.m.-1 p.m., followed by “Tea and Sympathy” with pastries, games and mug decorating from 2-3 p.m. in the ARC (Advisement, Resources, Career) Center in the Culp Center.
These free events “will help acknowledge this population of students, make them more visible, and show appreciation for their wisdom in the classroom,” Warner said.
