Best of 2013: Higher Ed for Non-traditional Students

Course offerings at PPCC range from Pipe Welding to Zookeeping Technology to Phlebotomy to Theatre to Baking, and the student body matches that mix. "Our students are anything but typical," says president Lance Bolton. "For instance, it is completely normal to have a 16-year-old student sitting next to a 65-year-old student, and our students love it! This diversity of age, ethnic background and thought process heightens the quality of our education. " Plans are underway for a military and veterans center that will open early in 2014, with new office space, a veterans lounge, study space, more student computers for registration and benefits filing, and a space for reps from Veterans Affairs and VA Vocational Rehabilitation to meet with veterans. — Mary Jo Meade
