Focus magazine, Winter 2018: Not tardy ... timely!
Today’s 'freshmen' are rewriting the rules on the college experience
Winter 2018 issue of Focus magazine introduces the new face of the freshman class – a diverse and driven group, with goals forged in hard times and odd jobs, false starts and course corrections. They’ve raised children, waited tables, landscaped yards, cleaned restaurant carpets at 2 a.m., maintained Army helicopters in the desert heat. They’re adults now – and students, too, because they’ve learned, often the hard way, that a high school diploma isn’t enough.
Meet seven of these students — members of America’s “new freshman class.” They’re individuals from all walks of life, who are seeking or have recently earned their first credential after high school.
