Here are some older links and information about Nontraditional Student support in this state. There may still be some clues here to help you find help and support at your school. Please pardon any links that no longer work. They will soon be deleted or fixed this year (2015).
Western Illinois University - Organization
of Adult Students for Interaction and Support (O.A.S.I.S.)
From their email: "We are an inclusive group on WIU's main campus
in Macomb, IL. We are a diverse group including Veterans, returning
students, married/partnered, widowed/divorced, International
students, and parent students. We also have an active group
of parents, headed up by our Student Parent Association Chair,
Sarah Scott. We are hoping to make connections and build relationships
with other non-traditional students around the country, to lend
support and share resources."
Sarah Scott is the contact person. Michelle Langhout is President.
