BGSU creates new center for nontraditional student

BOWLING GREEN, O.—The path to college is not always a straight one. Many students at Bowling Green State University are considered “nontraditional”—students who are coming to college after a military career or time spent raising a family, or who are ready to get a college degree years after graduating from high school.

BGSU is dedicated to addressing their unique challenges and helping them succeed. On Wednesday (May 26), the University will celebrate the expansion and new home of Nontraditional and Transfer Student Services (NTSS). The event starts at 4 p.m. at the College Park Office Building. Attendees can meet the staff, tour the facility and talk with students.

NTSS provides one-on-one assistance through the admissions process, registration and planning process. Staff provide the guidance, support and resources needed to balance a nontraditional student’s personal responsibilities with academic and career goals.

BGSU President Carol Cartwright will provide opening remarks at 4:30 p.m. Dr. Kenneth Borland, senior vice president for academic affairs and provost, Dr. Barbara Henry, vice president nontraditional and transfer student services, and Frank Fischer, veteran and 2010 graduate, will also speak.
