No, as long as your mind is agile, alert, and willing, you can attend college.......at any age! There was a story where a 95 year old woman graduated from college and intend to attend graduate school. To our precious old people: why waste away your life doing nothing, use and broaden your mind, attend college and be useful to yourselves and others.
I feel that you are never too old to go to college, but you can certainly be too young. A lot of kids go right to college after high school and have no idea what they want to do. They end up wasting their time changing majors and getting in trouble. Once they have graduated they have no work experience. Kids should instead get some work experience, find out what they really want to do in life, then go to college. 21 isn't to hard to ask right? No underage drinking, no issues.
I completely agree. I think once you are a little older, you appreciate it more and work a little harder. Too many young kids go off to college and end up dropping out or being kicked out for poor grades. I'm sure it doesn't pertain to everyone.
No one is ever too old to go to college. Dorm life is a little irritating when you are the oldest person in the building. Go off campus if you can. (Oh yeah, remember this, just because you are old enough to date your professor does not make that a good idea.)
It is never too old to go to go to college. Learning has no age barrier and there are many options available if one wants to complete his or her studies.
No. I dont think so. It's never to late to return for more education. What if someone chose a profession and 30 years later they decide they want to try something else, something new. " It's never tooo lateee "

Is it pointless to go back to college for 10 years at 30 yrs old?It's been a crazy year for me with a lot of really weird events. Plus with me turning 30 this year I started looking at my life. I always wanted a degree in Archaeology or Anthropology but never got it. I am now seriously considering...

If we bring down the tuition rate for grad school, would more people attend?Let's just say that the gov't brought down the tuition rate for graduate schools, do you think that this would make more people attend or would it stay the same? By how much should it be brought down?

Are you ever too old to pursue a long-held dream?
