Non-Traditional Student Spotlight
NTS Spotlight: Erick Lane
After retiring from a career as a Logistical Specialist in the United States Army, Erick Lane is majoring in Business Administration with a Supply Chain Management concentration.
Erick’s maturity and life experiences have given him several advantages as a Non-Traditional student at Shippensburg University. Erick has learned how to accomplish goals and work well with others. Prior to his military career, Erick also had previous experience in retail management. He plans on utilizing his professional, academic and personal life experiences to assist him in achieving his goal of pursuing a position in Logistics Operations with the US Federal Government. Erick is extremely grateful for the support of his wife Chrissy as he pursues his life dreams. "I have a wonderful and very supportive wife that is genuinely engaged in my education," said Erick. With the loving support of his wife, Erick is able to successfully balance his heavy workload, 17 credits his first semester, with his home life.
To make the transition easier and connect with other Non-Traditional students, Erick joined NTSO (Non-Traditional Student Organization) on campus. " I can't think of anything else the NTSO could do to make things better. I can't thank you all enough for all you did, especially at the beginning. You helped get me on track with what is possible here at Shippensburg University and having that knowledge helped make the transition a lot easier than I expected," said Erick.
