Going back to College
As a college student, all my fellow students are worried about what they will do for spring break. I, on the other hand, am trying to figure out what to do with my grandchildren. I have been out of school for 28 years. Being back in college is exciting, but it can also be very stressful too.
So many things have changed since I was in school. For instance, the subjects are a lot harder than 28 years ago. For example, the math classes with algebra are nothing like the algebra that I learned back in the day. Also, all of our homework has to be done online. We didn’t really use the internet back then. Furthermore, it’s really nice getting to meet new friends that are my age and older. For instance, we all get together and have study groups to try to help each other out.
To sum it up, going back to college at an older age has its advantages and disadvantages. The subjects are different to some extent, but I just have to work that much harder to understand and learn the internet better. It’s really nice having friends that you can get together with as a study group to help each other understand and try to accomplish our goals. I feel that going back to school will help me learn that it doesn’t matter how old you are, you still can accomplish your goals in life if you put forth the effort.
