I’m what they consider a “non-traditional” student here at Penn State. Basically that means I’m coming into the PhD program having taken a 20+ year detour into the business world. So I guess the non-traditional part is the “real-life” experience I bring to the table (because I don’t really want it to just mean I’m older).

That said, as I walk around campus I’m immersed in a sea of 18-20 something year olds. I get to overhear a lot of very interesting conversations. OK, maybe I listen in in an attempt to feel closer to my kids of the same age whom I left back in VA.

That said, in the spirit of “overheard” Web sites everywhere, I launch the inaugural edition of “Overheard on campus.” It’s about conversations I find interesting or at least revealing in terms of the younger generation and their experiences at college and it’s as close to the actual conversation as my “non-traditional” brain can remember.

Overheard on campus

Male: “As long as I’m here I’ll never miss a football game.”

Female: “Yeah right, unless, like, you have to go home or something.”

Male: “Why would I go home?”

Female: “You know, for family shit.”

Male: “We don’t do shit in our family.”
