Thinking about entering college or embarking on a new educational path but hesitating because the faculty and other students will likely be around the ages of children or grandchildren? This collection of inspiring stories from 15 individuals who made a successful academic comeback after age 50 and continue to build their knowledge prove you're never too old to learn. These scholars, ranging from age 55 to 98, include a former garment factory worker who tested for the GED at age 52 then made her way through college to become a special education teacher and an engineer who left a 30-year career in his late fifties to enter medical school. Their stories are filled with success strategies that will help the mature student navigate various systems of education, carry on through criticism, tackle new technologies, and manage the human dynamics associated with intergenerational learning. They also show how abundant life and professional experiences can work to your advantage. This little book belongs on the reading list of anyone thinking about heading back to school or planning for a life of continued learning.
