I just want to take a moment to encourage anyone over the age of 25 who is currently contemplating a return to school. I know that the spring semester has already begun, but a news report yesterday about older students brought back memories of the struggles I went through as an older student. And I recall being stopped in the parking lot one day by an older woman who was trying to summon up the courage to walk into the college’s admitting office. We spoke for several minutes and I have often wondered if she was successful.
Just want to tell you that it is worth the time, effort, and money to get your degree and follow your dreams!
