Campus Service Assists Military and Post-Traditional Students

Eric Armstrong and Jeffrey Salmon understand the extra challenges that adult and non-traditional college students face – as well as the extra motivation that drives these students to work hard and succeed. Armstrong is the director and Salmon the assistant director of NIU’s Military and Post-Traditional Student Services (MPTSS), an office that Salmon says “aims to be the one-stop-shop for our military and post-traditional student population.” Armstrong is a veteran, and he and Salmon both returned to school as adults, so they can relate to the unique experiences and needs of post-traditional students.
