About Me

Hi! Thanks for coming to my About Me age on the Betsyanne Nontrads site.

I was also a nontraditional student a few years back. I went back to school in my 40's. It was fun actually! Of course I was nervous at first. But then I got into the groove of being back in school.

Now I am considering going back to school again someday. But mostly I want to help other nontraditional students for now.

I have made a Yahoo group for nontraditional students, a Facebook group for nontraditional students, and I twitter about nontraditional students at @nontrads.

The Nontrad Group at school

I also started a Non-Traditional Student organization when I went back to school. Actually, I RE-started it... because there had been one there years back. It was a great experience, counting everything. I learned a lot about myself there.

While I was involved in that group, I realized that there needed to be a group like this at all schools. And I wanted to help that happen.

What this site is made for

This site is made to encourage all non-traditional students - - and help them all realize that they CAN do it.

In other words, they CAN succeed.

I want to help everyone realize that it doesn't matter if a person is older, or has been out of school for awhile.

Now that I went back to college, I know that I can do it. Although it was a challenge for me, I am very glad that I did go back. l learned so much. And now I think it's easier for me to try new things - easier than it was before. And that alone makes it all worth it.

I made some friends at the University that I will treasure always, and I keep up with them on Facebook and MySpace now.

I also learned so much about myself and what I can do.

I think that all non-traditional students can have a great experience going back to school, with a little help, advice, and information from people who have been there and done that.

More about me

So will I go back to college again? I just might. If I do, I probably will take an art class, or go for my Master's. I know that I am glad that I did it the first time, and I learned a lot. It was definitely worth it for me to go back to school as an older, nontraditional student.

I recommend it, if you are a nontraditional student, and are thinking about it. Try it out and see how you like it.
