A group that is less familar to higher education and student affairs professionals is non-traditionally aged students. Data from Van Der Werf and Sabtier (2009) indicates that non-traditionally aged students, ages 25 to 44, will be the fasting grouwing sub-population of students in higher education during the next decade. So how can student activities serve these non-traditionally aged customers?
