The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh’s Lifelong Learning and Community Engagement (LLCE) Adult Student Resources Office will be holding an open house for nontraditional students on Wednesday, Sept. 18 from 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. in Dempsey Hall, room 323.
Wendy Van Ahn, community outreach specialist with the Adult Student Resources office, said the free open house is designed to welcome students, faculty and staff to campus for the fall semester and introduce them and the public to the office’s advising, support and other services and programs.
“The open house provides students an early opportunity in the semester to connect with other adult students and discover what the LLCE Adult student resources office is all about,” Van Ahn said. “Students will find that our staff understands the unique needs that adult students have. Three of our staff are currently enrolled as students at UW Oshkosh.”
“It is our hope that any adult who may be considering a return to college will attend the open house and leave feeling welcomed and supported as they explore their options,” Van Ahn said.
The event presents an opportunity for current and prospective students to reconnect and meet with UW Oshkosh faculty and staff.
“We frequently have several staff or faculty who stop by to meet our students or reconnect as the fall semester begins. A few departments that have had faculty and staff attend in the past are officers and active members of Nontraditional Student Organization, the math and English department, LLCE degree program advisers, admissions and financial aid, Veterans Resource Center and the Dean of Students/Disability Accommodations.”
“Whether they are already enrolled, or in the beginning stages of exploring a return to college, we are here to assist students in their journey,” Van Ahn said.
