More than 32%, or almost one-third of Chattanooga State's student population, are adults juggling multiple life roles while attending college. When assistance is needed, knowing where to find that information can sometimes present a challenge.

To address that challenge, the CADRE Adult Student Club is sponsoring a Virtual Adult Student Recognition Week from November 9 to 14 with information about programs and services offered at ChattState and providing students with tools to be successful. Prospective students are also encouraged to participate in the event.

Academic divisions and service departments from the College will showcase programs and services to the adult student population. Each day will be devoted to a specific topic. Current and prospective students are invited to discover what Chattanooga State offers to you as a student.
