“I wanted to be able to make some changes…”

“Don’t hesitate, there’s no better time.”

Nathan had already earned a finance degree and was working as a financial analyst when he realized it wasn’t something he wanted to do for his whole life. Now he’s back to earn a Microbiology degree and hopes to go on to dental school after graduation.

“It felt like it was too late.”

Just as he was ready to graduate, Nathan felt like he was already locked in to a career and that it was too late to change it. A few years later he was visiting with a friend who had returned to college to change careers. It wasn’t until then that Nathan realized he could do it too.

“It’s nice to be in class with other people like you.”

Weber State has a high percentage of nontraditional students (students who are over 25, married, or have children). Nathan likes having more in common with his classmates. “It’s nice to have people in your class that have kids and know what you’re going through.”
