Helping you pursue an education that's right for you
Traditionally Untraditional is built with the goal to be a simple platform that gives students and parents a reference point away from the mass of traditional information about college. Use our pages to find basic info about community college, study abroad, and personal experiences of community members who chose the less traditional route, not because they had no other option but because they found community college to be the better option. We hope to make your search for information simple and give you answers to questions maybe you didn't even know you had.
WHAT YOU'LL FIND HERE
WORD ON THE STREET
Here you'll find stories from students who have taken the community college route either as their first step, or as a stepping stone somewhere along the line. You'll find their story, high school/hometown, community college, and current path. They'd love to share their thoughts with you! They will offer insight on how to be successful and why community college has made a difference in their lives.
Come check out our resources page for a basket full of tips, tricks and more! You'll find our college application tool kit for students who are applying for the first time or for transfer. You'll also find resources to help you understand the community college system and even a few pages about reduced tuition at 4-year universities.
