Hi to all nontraditional students. I hope you are having a terrific summer.











Greetings to all nontraditional students and those who help them.

Well, it's fine weather in Kentucky. We have been hot and sometimes rainy lately.

How is the weather where you live? 

I remember when I went to summer school in college - - the classes were on an excelerated pace, but it went OK.

I wasn't planning to go to summer school, but it just happened.  A talk with an advisor earlier on would have helped, I know. Sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do, as they say.

To all nontraditional students, going back to school after a break, and those thinking about it, here are some fun sayings you may like.

"You CAN do it."  -Anonymous

To pottery artists: "Remember the beauty of imperfection. In other words, anyone can buy a pot off an assembly line. They are all alike. But an artist makes each pot differently, with that extra something." -Mary Hooper Hirst

"A book is like a garden carried in a pocket." - Chinese Proverb

"Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities!"  - Norman Vincent Peale

Carry on, fearless nontrads. How is it going? Leave a comment!
