A great way to connect

  • Library days. Have a cup of coffee and get study tips or researh help!  Beginning this semester a librarian will be in the ANTS Center from 11am to 12pm on Tuesdays. They will be around to help you in the computer lab or on lap top as questions arise. The ANTS Center will be a great place to kick off your research paper!

Help us make a mark! Use #ANTSCAPSU

Austin Peay State University has long enjoyed the advantages of having a large adult population on our campus and in our classrooms. The terms Adult Learner and Nontraditional Student have specific applications in higher education but they can be confusing, because after all, aren't we all adults? Aren't we all different and college is the place to be unconventional! So, what is a nontraditional student? 


Hours: Monday - Thursday 8:00am to 6:00pm; Friday till 4:30pm

The Adult and Nontraditonal Student Center has a computer lab, coffee, tea, refrigerator, and large screen television for relaxing and eating lunch in a congenial environment. Staff are on hand to answer questions and help facilitate the college experience for Adult and Nontraditional Students.
