I'm whittling away at what "other" means...

In my pedagogy (ped-a-go-gee) class (a class for learning how to teach), our reading for this coming week is on how to be aware of diversity in the classroom. UNC has tremendous resources for professors on how to be better teachers, and one of the issues this week is being aware of diversity issues in the classroom and how to prepare for them. Among the diversity chapters is "non-traditional" students. There is a name for what I am!

A recent Marketing News article (can't get the article on-line--only on paper) mentioned that we are actually a growing demographic--those who are returning to school for a second career--but are difficult to reach in one place with advertising because we come from all walks of life and have so many different goals and interests.
