As a returning adult\career change student, I thought it would be challenging. I thought it would be uncomfortable in a class room after many years with much younger students. However, they are many returning adults back in school. It's very different from when I went to college. The professors applaude you and the younger students admire you for going back to college. They are also very helpful with where to get the best bargins on your books and give you info on the best professors. The staff is also very helpful.
