OASIS meeting for nontraditional students September 12
OASIS is an organization that seeks to assist and offer resources helpful for nontraditional students. A nontraditional student can be many things, including adult, commuter, and transfer students that attend EIU. This group helps form connections between students while they are at the university.
We offer meetings several times a semester in order to provide opportunities to meet and network with other students. Although you have a unique background and story, other students like you are looking to branch out and meet new people during their time at EIU.
Our first meeting will be held on September 12 in the Adult Commuter Student Lounge outside the Scharer Room on the third floor, west wing in EIU's Union from 11-12 p.m. Sandwiches and refreshments will be offered, so please come join us and meet some new students while you're at it.
We’re on Facebook, so you can reach us there and like our page to get up-to-date information about events that we host throughout the school year. We also have a student guide
to check out, which provides some basic information about OASIS and EIU. If you have any questions, please contact Patrick Singer at 217-581-5114 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
