SWAN (Students Who Are Non-Traditional)


S.W.A.N. (Students Who Are Non-Traditional)

S.W.A.N. is the Student Association recognized organization created and run by non-traditional NIU Students. This academic year the exec board is made up of Krystal Do (President), Stephen Douglin (Vice President), Roy Rosales (Treasurer) and Britney Young (Secretary). They are busy planning the year's events and activities. Please e-mail them at SWANOCNTSSNIU@gmail.com throughout the spring semester and let them know your ideas. This inclusive group is looking to bring non-trads together to engage in the university experience. If you are interested in more information regarding joining S.W.A.N. or the group's activities, please e-mail S.W.A.N. or contact Jeffrey Salmon - the staff advisor - at jsalmon1@niu.edu
