The Clayton State University Office of Orientation and New Student Programs, and the University’s Center for Academic Success co-sponsored four receptions over two days last week, honoring the non-traditional students of Clayton State during National Non-Traditional Student Recognition Week.
The University’s Non-Traditional Student Organization (NTSO) also made its official debut on campus last week.
“NTSO is very appreciative and grateful for the tremendous support its members have received from both the Office of Orientation and New Student Programs and the Center for Academic Success,” notes NTSO President Diana Peters. “Both offices played a crucial role in the development of NTSO.
“NTSO also wishes to thank the 80 plus students, faculty and staff who attended the receptions and participated in the `Let Your Voice Be Heard’ activity. It was very helpful for the NTSO officers to speak with non-traditional students about their needs and concerns. The information gathered will provide NTSO with a direction for activites and events during spring semester.”
There were four drawings for door prizes during the receptions. The winners of $5 gift cards to Jazzman's in the Baker Center were; Bonita Tarplay, Charlotte Johnson, Quiana R. Lewis, and Carole Simon.
The Non-Traditional Student Organization was formed for the purpose of providing a collaborative community consisting of faculty, staff and students in order to facilitate an effective learning environment at Clayton State University; identifying areas of needed support for non-traditional students; creating and maintaining a listing of all available on-campus and off-campus resources for nontraditional students; and, in turn, providing support to all students of Clayton State University to enable them to successfully achieve their educational goals at Clayton State University. Membership in NTSO is open to all Clayton State University students, faculty, staff, and alumni who desire to provide a supportive community for non-traditional students.
