Non-Traditional Student Organization

The NTSO exists to provide a supportive atmosphere to those who consider themselves to be non-traditional students. While non-traditional can mean many things, the NTSO at SMSU has traditionally focused on serving the needs of students who are returning to school after taking time off, who are parents, or who are veterans. We strive to provide a supportive atmosphere where non-traditional students can support one another's goals and form relationships that will last a lifetime.

The NTSO club room is located in CH 121 and is a comfortable, quiet place to relax, study, eat your lunch, and chat with friends. Members can use the club's two computer stations and printer, study table, refrigerator, microwave, and comfortable sofa! For more information, visit the NTSO Campus Labs page to learn about how to get involved.
