Non-Traditional Student Appreciation Week - November 6-10, 2017


What is a non-traditional student? Well, it's any student that attends classes in the evening on a campus or any student that attends classes online. This is your week! We have many ways for you to participate:

  1. Watch online webinars to develop personal skills to get you to the next level - like grit, salary negotiations and more.
  2. Meet key people at Stritch that are all working for your success - Sally La Rosa, our university nurse, Heidi Aringer, our mental health counselor, Mike Schade, Accessibility Services and others who are here to help you!
  3. Get involved in this year's Franciscan Value - creating a caring community through volunteering.
