Forbus, P., Mehta, S., Newbold, J (2010). A Comparative Study Between Non-Traditional and  Traditional Students in Terms of Their Demographics, Attitudes Behavior and Educational  Performance . International Journal of Education Research, Volume 5, Number 1 As students are returning to college and universities, there is a mixture of traditional and  non-traditional students, with more non-traditional students becoming standard for these  institutions. Traditional students have a continuous pathway into college from high  school as compared to their non-traditional counterparts who had opted to have some life  experience before continuing on their educational career. This study examines the  differences and similarities of the non-traditional student as compared to the traditional  student. Surveys were given to the entire student body and were asked several questions  as in regards to their grades, stress levels, attitudes behaviors and overall college  educational experience contentment. Some findings state that non-traditional students are more likely to be in a relationship  and will commute rather than consider staying on campus like the traditional student.  Non-traditional students while attending college will be employed and potentially work  more hours than the regular student who has a tendency to think as college as play time  and to have fun. The college experience is different between the two demographics as  non-traditional students are less inclined to be involved in activities that do not include  their schooling or family activities. Although these differences are relevant, the findings  found that there were no significant differences in the degree of stress between them or  any change in the gratification of being in college.  Forbus, P., Mehta, S., Newbold, J (2011). A Study of Non-Traditional and Traditional Students  in Terms of Their Time Management Behaviors, Stress Factors and Coping Strategies.   Academy of Educational Leadership Journal, Volume 15, Special Issue. Taking from the research the authors did one year earlier they enhanced some of the  information they found in the traditional and non-traditional students. Using the same  sample participation from the previous study (Forbus, P., Mehta, S., Newbold, J, 2010),  the authors expand upon it by looking into time management, stress and how each student is coping as well as what mechanism strategies were used. Adding to the existing

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
