What does a college student look like?

When most people think of a college student they likely imagine an 18- to 22-year-old coed bounding through the quad on the way to her dorm from a lecture hall. But these days, the typical college student actually looks more like Erin Jones.

Jones, 37, is a veteran and single mom who drives to her classes multiple days a week. After spending time in the military and the workforce, Jones decided to go back to school last year to study nursing as a way to ensure she’d one day earn a paycheck large enough to comfortably support herself and her two children.
