    In February 2014, an article written by Dr. Ricardo Azziz, President of Georgia Regents University, was published in the Huffington Post He states that "The rise in enrollment of students 25 and older is projected to be nearly double that of younger students through 2020 (Azziz,2014)." This is a staggering number. It leaves me to question if colleges are ready for this increase in nontrad enrollment?
