NonTrad Population Increasing

This is a good article about non-trads. Even though it's about a young lady attending school in California, I think it applies relatively well to most non-trads (except for part of the US Dept of Education's definition of a non-trad as being a "single mom" - not all of us are single parents). I believe that as we see more job layoffs and downsizing coupled with a sagging economy, we will see more non-trads on college campuses (both 2-year and 4-year institutions) as "older" people decide to return to school to upgrade their skills or begin a new career.
