Best of 2015: Higher Ed for Non-traditional Students

Since most of its students are nontraditional, Pikes Peak Community College is always looking for ways to accommodate busy lives. This year, communication director Allison Cortez says, PPCC began offering more "community classes," or classes that don't earn credits but are offered at a discount and intended for working people — in this case, entrepreneurs. PPCC has also beefed up its internship program, teaming with local businesses to ensure students get quality, paying gigs that work with their class schedules. Another change: Manufacturing students have a new opportunity to learn on-site at Springs Fabrication, which is partnering with the school. — J. Adrian Stanley
