Adults return to campus
Fall semester at UNLV brings mix of optimism, concern
Kathy Webb, 48, a junior studying sociology, said she was excited to get back into classes. Webb, a mother of four grown children, said she decided to go back to college to advance her career.
“I’m just excited to be back on campus,” she said, perched in front of a computer at Lied Library. “I love to learn.”
Webb said that being a non-traditional student wasn’t as strange as she thought it might be. She said there are several students at UNLV like her, and that her previously work experience often works to her advantage.
“I can relate to the teachers,” she said. “Even the traditional students are glad I’m there because I ask questions.”
