Non-Traditional Students

Are you:

  • A parent or guardian
  • Married or in a domestic partnership?
  • Returning after a break in education?

A growing number of students at Boise State University are coming back to school after a break in their education. Sometimes these students are referred to as “non-traditional Students,” but there is nothing non-traditional about their growing numbers and abilities to succeed.

The Gender Equity Center offers a variety of support services for non-traditional students. Our licensed master social worker, Adriane Bang, offers one-on-one non-traditional student consultations to discuss the transition back to school or any barriers you may be experiencing. To make an appointment with Adriane, call the Gender Equity Center front desk or stop by. The center currently employs a non-traditional student peer educator who works to provide events and programs for non-traditional students on campus. Check out our events page to see what programs we have coming up.  In addition to these support services the Gender Equity Center also houses lounges and net stations for students’ use, as well as a lactation room

Lactation Room

Nursing moms find our lactation room a private and comfortable space for nursing or pumping. A loveseat, rocking chair and small stereo add to the comfort for nursing moms and their families.  You can drop in or make a reservation by calling 208-426-4259.
