Marshall recognized by PBS story on nontraditional students


clark-koppselfie_Aug2014Recent Marshall graduate Corey Clark, a Marine Corps veteran who went back to college after leaving the military, was featured in a Public Broadcasting Service story titled “Colleges adjust to new reality that more students juggle work, family” by Kyla Calvert, which appeared online this week.

Also quoted in the article were Andrew Gooding, director of the Regents Bachelor of Arts program, Dr. Tammy Johnson, executive director of admissions, and James Light, a veteran and current RBA student.

The focus of the article was that colleges and universities are increasing their attention to students that are older than the usual college student, with centers and programs specifically for them.
