"Zoomers" Creates Support Network


Non-traditional students have teamed up to form a support network of peers. Not limited to college resumers and baby boomers, this organization is open to any non-traditional student.

Through the Non-traditional Student Organization, also known as “Zoomers,” non-traditional students have a way to help learn about events on campus, find resources that can help them during the semester and get to know each other.

A non-traditional student is generally someone who is 23 or older, married, has children, in the military, been out of school for a year or more, travels more than 30 miles to campus or works full-time.

Zoomers is creating a schedule of events and is open to new ideas. There will be three informational meetings to accommodate as many students as possible. They are:

  • Wednesday, Sept. 8 at Noon, Doc Bryan Room 104
  • Thursday, Sept. 9 at 2:30 p.m, Doc Bryan Room 104
  • Sunday, Sept. 12 at 2 p.m., Doc Bryan Lecture Hall
