Non-Traditional Students' Week: November 2-8


CLL appreciates our non-traditional adult students and the many challenges they face as they balance the responsibilities of work, school and family. Please share your story in this year’s Essay Contest by answering: What obstacle have you met as an adult student and how have you overcome it? (approximately 250 words).

  • 1st prize—$250
  • 2nd prize—$150
  • 3rd prize—$100

Submit your essay to by November 25. Your story may provide the inspiration and encouragement someone else needs to overcome obstacles in their own life. Winners will be announced by the 2nd week of December and the essays published on the CLL Current Students page of the IU website. The Essay Contest is sponsored by the Office of the Dean of Students.

We hope you check your IU e-mail regularly but especially November 3-8 when we’ll be sending helpful hints for school success. Do you ever wonder who is really answering your phone calls and e-mails? As an added bonus, you can finally put a face to that name with some special messages from our CLL staff. Don’t miss these important words of wisdom.
