The purpose of this blog is to share information and stories regarding non-traditional college students. I chose this topic because it’s a subject that is close to my heart.
After over twenty years in the workforce, I decided to go back to school to get a degree and a better job doing what I love. I never thought that I’d be able to work and go to college full-time, but I’m doing it, like many other students I encounter. Is it the hardest thing I’ve ever done? Yes. Is it worth it? Absolutely.
I hope you’ll join me as I talk about the challenges and the triumphs of the non-traditional college student. Together, let’s share the exciting, terrifying, exhausting, enlightening and rewarding moments that make up this very special experience.
