SUNY Cortland will celebrate Non-Traditional Students Week Oct. 28 to Nov. 1 with an array of activities offered through Advisement and Transmission.
The College defines its non-traditional undergraduate students as those who are at least 24 years old or have had an interruption or delay in their education since high school. They also might have dependent children, regardless of their ages.
Events will be held in the Non-Traditional Student Lounge, Cornish Hall, Room 1221. They are free to non-traditional students and include:
Monday, Oct. 28: Popcorn party with lollipop ghosts, 12:30 to 1:30 p.m.
Tuesday, Oct. 29: Taco Tuesday lunch, noon to 2 p.m.
Wednesday, Oct. 30: Soup and sandwiches, 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Thursday, Oct. 31: Halloween pizza and wings, 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Friday, Nov. 1: TGIF warm-up with hot chocolate and muffins, 9 to 10 a.m.
In celebration of SUNY Cortland’s non-traditional students, nominations are being accepted through Monday, Nov. 4, for the “Celebrate-a-Non-Trad” campaign. Nomination forms can be submitted electronically.
The campaign aims to recognize non-traditional students who often balance college with other commitments such as family, jobs and long commutes. SUNY Cortland will present nominated non-traditional students with a certificate and campus recognition.
Nominations should include the student’s name, contact information, relationship to the student and comments about the non-traditional student. Comments will be listed on the certificate, unless otherwise noted.
