Stories from Adult Students at IU

Adult Student Resources (ASR)
Unconventional paths…exceptional results!

ASR seeks to provide academic, financial, professional, and social support to nontraditional adult students on the IUB campus. A nontraditional adult student is loosely defined as any undergraduate who is 25 years of age or older. They have often experienced a gap in their education since graduating from high school and may be parents, spouses, caregivers, full-time employees, serving in the military, and/or military veterans.

A variety of online resources are made available through ASR, including a community of IUB adult student peers on Facebook and Oncourse. In-person professional development workshops and social events are held throughout each semester. Visit ASR online at

This blog is a great opportunity for nontraditional adult students to share their unique stories and inspire other adults to return to school and achieve their dreams.
