For 13 years, Aliya Vance has worked as a public safety officer and dispatcher at La Salle University with what’s been a lifelong mission: helping others. Now, she has another La Salle title, too: graduate.
Vance is among 7.4 million students 25 years or older attending the nation’s colleges and universities. Being an older student comes with its own set of challenges, as many of today's students must balance school, family, and jobs.
