The State University at Potsdam has a group of nontraditional students. They are called The Nontraditional Student Organization. They have their own web page here:

From the website:

"Mission Statement
Provides support and representation, shares knowledge and experiences, and works to enhance the college experience of the Non-Traditional Students on the SUNY Potsdam campus.

The NTSO represents a large group of SUNY Potsdam's students. Non-Traditional students have made a decision to continue their education after a hiatus from high school. Many of these students often juggle a full time job, full academic course loads, and usually have lengthy commutes to and from campus.
Our organization actively works with staff and student government to assist in making sure that Non-Traditional students are given all opportunities at success.
If you are a Non-Traditional student and you are interested in finding out more about NTSO stop by the lounge on the first floor of Carson Hall and ask any of our members.

Michelle Durham, NTSO President
Wayne Gladle, NTSO Treasurer

SUNY Cortland has a nontraditional student group too, the NTSO. They also have events, newsletters, resources, advisement staff, a nontrad student lounge, and more. Find out more here:
