Tami DeLand’s “How to Take a Nontraditional Path to College” is an interesting blog profile about Tabatha Nentl, a middle-aged woman and mother who returns to college after 20 years to study interactive media and graphic design at Minnesota School of Business – St. Cloud.
I can relate to Tabatha (and not just because she shares my name!). She points out something I, too, noticed after I started attending college: Seemingly unrelated information from different classes is in fact connected. As you move your way through college, you start to see the patterns. It’s something I’ve really come to appreciate about higher education.
I also share Tabatha’s amazement over fellow students who don’t seem to understand that good grades are the result of hard work. They are not just handed out.
The profile is well written, just the right length, and contains many good quotes from Tabatha.
