As a non-traditional student you probably have lived independently. Here are some ways to experience community while living off-campus:
Frost Cottage is like a comforting home away from home. Non-traditional students can cook for themselves or make tea or coffee, build community, and study in a peaceful and productive environment.
The Ecovillage offers a Thursday luncheon during the Fall and Spring for all non-traditional students, offering an alternative to the Dining Hall, and a chance to catch up.
The Non-Traditional Student Association (NTSA) offer regular non-traditional events, go to Non-Trad Events. Also check out Collegiate Link for the option to customize your event notifications and to receive notice of Non Traditional events.
Last, watch out for emails from firstname.lastname@example.org. Feel free to email any ideas you have for events, talks, or initiatives, as well as any concerns.
