Western Illinois University - Organization of Adult Students for Interaction and Support (O.A.S.I.S.)

From their email: "We are an inclusive group on WIU's main campus in Macomb, IL. We are a diverse group including Veterans, returning students, married/partnered, widowed/divorced, International students, and parent students. We also have an active group of parents, headed up by our Student Parent Association Chair, Sarah Scott. We are hoping to make connections and build relationships with other non-traditional students around the country, to lend support and share resources."


Sarah Scott is the contact person. Michelle Langhout is President. Mail to 1 University Circle.
