Why being a nontraditional student can be hard...but worth it...

 Hi to all nontraditional students and the people that help them.

Today I ran across an article by a nontraditional student going to Stony Brook State University of New York. He is taking a full load of classes, plus helps take care of a child, cooks, does reports, researches, etc. etc.

Here is a quote from the article:

"It’s difficult, but I wouldn’t change anything either.  I know that I have to make an extra effort, but I’m happy because it’s an effort that has a reward."

So true! This resonates with many nontraditional students. I have heard others who also keep their goal in mind, no matter what.
