It's National Nontraditional Student Week, and BGSU's Nontraditional and Transfer Student Services (NTSS) is offering several special workshops and launching a support group targeted to those students.
Tonight (Nov. 9), NTSS and the Counseling Center will begin offering a peer-to-peer support group where nontraditional students can ask questions, discuss struggles and learn creative ways to cope with balancing multiple roles. The group will meet from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Tuesdays in Room 2 College Park. Call 2-8136 for more information, or come to any of the meetings.
Nontraditional students can also participate in a number of workshops offered by NTSS and the Counseling Center. Study and test-taking skills will be the focus tomorrow (Nov. 10). Attendees can learn about techniques they can incorporate into their schedules. The workshop runs from 11 a.m. to noon in Room 2 College Park. It will be repeated from 2-3 p.m. on Dec. 3.
Learn how to deal with stress in a workshop from 10-11 a.m. on Nov. 18 in Room 2 College Park. Participants will learn about how stress works and impacts their daily lives. More importantly, they'll learn strategies to help recognize and understand the signs of stress and how to manage it.
In addition, NTSS will honor veterans at Wednesday's (Nov. 10) home football game. A free, special pre-game tent will be set up for veterans from 5:30-7:30 p.m., with free food and drinks for all service members and their families.
