Roger Martin, president of Randolph-Macon College and a cancer survivor, is enrolled as a freshman at St. John's College in Annapolis, Md. Martin, 61, says he's learning things about campus life that he can use in his administrative role — including some lessons that are humbling. He talks with NPR's Scott Simon.
