It would be difficult to imagine the ‘typical’ community college student.
They are from the local community or from across the world; working two jobs but still making time for school; they are in their late teens, their early 60s and every age in between. Some are married, some are single, and many have children. As a population, they have no typical family structure, life style, ethnicity, or national origin.
