Student-Moms Take Kids to College

"BRENNA WELSH, who is 4 years old, thinks she lives in a hotel and eats dinner at a restaurant every night. That the hotel is a modest three-story dormitory and the restaurant a college cafeteria is unimportant to her. That she is able to live with her mother, Nicole Welsh , 29, and 6- year-old brother while her mom works toward her degree makes her happy and ambitious. “When I get big,” she says, sitting in a child-size chair in the dorm’s day care center, “I’m gonna clean my room.” Evidence of children is sprinkled throughout the campus of Wilson College. A women’s liberal arts school in south-central Pennsylvania near the West Virginia border, it is home to 400 full-time students, 20 of them mothers." By Jane Gordon, N.y.
