I was a non-traditional student. After my four children had successfully finished their college degrees, I returned to school and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in my fifties. Any one over the age of 25 is considered a mature student (better than saying “old”).
Straight out of high school, I found employment, and have been working ever since. But, the older I got, the more I felt the need to go back to school. I began to fantasize about graduating from college. I wanted to be as smart as my children!
