Who gets to go to college? This episode of Compact Nation Podcast: segments! Join us for a great conversation about what we mean when we use the term “non-traditional college students.” We also decode reports on “free college,” finding that some programs are not as free as they seem. Our bright spot this episode is brought to us by Stephanie Schooley, Executive Director of Campus Compact of the Mountain West as she discusses their SECond Mission program to help member institutions create a Veteran-supportive campus culture. Finally, pop culture corner is back! We discuss the serious topic of the #MeToo movement, share a great podcast recommendation (for when you’re all caught up with #CompactNationPod), and get into the October spirit with the newest season of American Horror Story. Listen now and weigh in online using #CompactNationPod.
