"Celebrating Non-Traditional Students"

We DO get a second chance. The wide range of ages in most evening and weekend classes constantly reminds us that it's never too late to go to school. And even students who did poorly the first time around are likely to succeed as adult students. We truly appreciate our education. Our goals are more defined and practical, so it's easier to see the value of our classes. We have the satisfaction of doing something important for ourselves. At the same time, it will have benefits far beyond us – to our families and communities. We get to experiment. One of the advantages of going to school while holding a job is that we can test the new concepts we're learning in the real world. We can then fine-tune them in a non-threatening classroom environment. We have the opportunity to share the knowledge and experience we've gained in the world with an attentive and appreciative audience. Just think – we may even be in a position to teach the teacher! Education multiplies our career options. It opens doors – some that we hadn't even seen before. It also better prepares us to cope with change.*
