Welcome to Adult Learners/Students


Thank you for logging on to yet enjoy more "reading", you are truly an adult student when you have logged on to read more reading on top of everything else your college or university throws at you. Here I am hopeful that we will be able to help alleviate some of the stress you will incur or are in the midst of currently. This is a place where those furthering their academic careers may come and chat with each other - almost like getting away to a nice cafe'. So, grab a cup of your favorite drink and let's just chat about things that go on in our lives as adult learners who are students. We Rock!

The Non-Traditional Student (ADLs)

Whew! You've decided to go back to college. The average student in classes I teach, range from 23-27 years old. Many of the students are in their forties. Deciding to go back to school is a challenge, especially since so many people have obligations that kept them from returning in the first place. People have families to take care of, children and parents; along with those responsibilities, there are oftentimes the full-time job, peers, memberships to associations/organizations and other such activities that take up the non-traditional student's time. As ADLs (adult learners) it is oftentimes difficult to play the juggling act of multitasking when you haven't taken time to wrap your mind around your new found responsibilities of being a college student. Well, help is on the way. You will find in this blog, various way to combat stress, negative relationships and peers, self-sabotage and the ole "I just can't do this anymore". Hang on, shortly, I will delve into this blog and start along with you on your path to meeting your academic goals. Sit back, relax and you will be able to breathe again in no time.
