Transcript "it's a family affair... Students make time for family commitments While many UH students spent their weekends club-hopping and living life without a care, time out of school had a very different meaning for another portion of the student body. To those less traditional college students, weekends might have been more closely identified with changing diapers, having family dinners and helping work first grade math problems. "We've had our hands full since we had our daughter," said junior psychology major Michael Twigg, who went to school while his wife, Elizabeth, stayed home with the baby. "My wife was a UH student, but she had to take some time off for the baby," he said. "We are both learning that raising a child takes a lot of work." Many UH students echoed Twigg's feelings about becoming parents, as college life for them meant not only lots of homework and studying, but handing those obligations in the middle of a busy, sometimes hectic family life. "I am married, but my husband and I still haven't been able to have a real wedding like we want," said freshman pre-pharmacy major Lydia Segers-Banova. "It's just a matter of working it all out with money and school." As Segers-Banova noted, being a student sometimes required serious cutbacks on what others took as everyday parts of life. Nice weddings, private schools for the kids and frequent evenings out just were not possible for some students who had to focus both their attention and their finances on school. Students' family situations spanned a broad range, from childless newlyweds to parents of school-aged them. Whether they were finding time to spend with their spouses or trying to study for finals while helping their kids ready for their own, some Cougars proved that college success was not only for the young and commitment-free. "Being married and having kids made it harder for me to get through school; I didn't finish in four years like most people do," said communications graduate Deanna Sheffield. "It took me awhile, but it was important that I gave enough of my time to my family while still finishing school." -Cortney Martin Sometimes, being a student meant making sacrifices, although family commitments usually came first as far as UH stu dents were concerned. Often, com promise was the only answer. Family time Family members of all ages know how to enjoy a sunny day. Many UH students found ways to spend time with their entire families at once, with weekend outings to local events. Photo by Lauren Wilson children.
