The purpose of these pages is to showcase my web design skills. The Non-Traditional Studentsí Union described on this site does not exist. There are many sites, and many organizations whose mission it is to support adult learners and those who educate them. You will find links to some of those sites on these pages. However, there is no national or international virtual community.
As an older student who is racing her son to commencement (at the moment he is one semester - and 32 years - behind me) I am grateful for all the support that has been available to me and my family. Still, more readily accessible support and better information for the public about those of us who earned our gray hairs before facing our first major research paper would have been nice.
Perhaps, some day, the NTSU will be a real organization: online, real time, and ready to help show the world that learning is an adventure at any age!
