College is thought of as a ticket to a better life. Non-traditional students- those who go to college later in life- can face an uphill battle in their fight to obtain that ticket. We talk to Mike Rose from UCLA about accommodating these students.

Kids are always on their phones, tablets or computers – even when they’re sitting across from one another at the lunch table! Does communicating via screens hurt kids? We talk to two researchers who found that too much screen time at the cost of face-to- face communication could decrease our ability to recognize emotions, and possibly even shorten our lives.
A college education is usually a ticket to a better job, better health and overall life satisfaction – that is if you can get one. Non-traditional students — those who are older, who work fulltime or who have families – can have a tough time just figuring out how to apply to college, talk to a professor or find scholarships or financial aid. Our guest discusses the hurdles non-traditional students have to clear and what schools and communities can do to make their transition into higher education easier.
