The NTSO is a community of non-traditional students providing support for each other, both academically and professionally, and to make the transition back into school easier for new adult students. Benefits to all members include introduction to other mature, like-experienced people to share study tips, to share opportunities in other clubs and extracurricular activities on campus, to organize monthly talks for members by CU community leaders on topics such as career advice, to create opportunities to demonstrate leadership, and to help the CU Non-Traditional Student community through sharing resources in an interactive forum format.
