Non-Traditional Student Organization

Not everyone’s college experience is going to be the same. SMSU has students with diverse backgrounds such as age, religion, culture, & gender.

There are many challenges a Non-Traditional student faces are:

  • Feeling “poles apart” from others in class
  • Juggling current responsibilities such as working full time/part time, child rearing, homework, and study time
  • Downsizing lifestyles to fit a new way of living
  • Keeping friends while being academically successful

NTSO at Southwest Minnesota State University provides a place where students who have decided to make education an important part of their lives can meet and share problems and information.
