Good episode? Give it some love!
37 percent of today’s college students are 25 or older.  Nearly two thirds of college students work. Half of today’s students are on their own financially with many supporting family members and children of their own. Helping today’s students requires a different kind of college experience then what we see in movies; one that supports more than academic needs.  We feature two successful programs working to provide comprehensive support to community college students. Nadine Browne, Director of Accelerated Study in Associate Programs, or …, at Bronx Community College talks about her experience implementing the successful program in New York.  Paige Ponder and Veronica Herrero also join us to share preliminary results from the Chicago-based One Million Degrees program.
