Non-Traditional Students Will Be Celebrated Nov. 13 to 17


In celebration of SUNY Cortland’s non-traditional students, nominations are being accepted through Friday, Nov. 17, for the “Celebrate-a-Non-Trad” campaign. Sponsored by Advisement and Transition, the campaign is part of Non-Traditional Students Week, Nov. 13 through 17.

Nomination forms have been e-mailed to the campus community and are available electronically

For more information about Non-Traditional Students Week or to recognize an outstanding non-traditional student, contact Non-Traditional Student Support Coordinator Cheryl Hines or visit the website.

The purpose of the campaign is to recognize non-traditional students who often balance college with other commitments such as family, jobs and long commutes. SUNY Cortland will recognize 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.

Special events will be held throughout the week in the Non-Traditional Student Lounge, Cornish Hall, Room 1221. They are free to non-traditional students and include:
