There are several reasons to go back to school now that you’re an adult. It is becoming far more common for adults to go back and take some classes, or even enroll for the first time. I didn’t go to college until I was 23 and my mother enrolled for the first time this year at the age of 48. Don’t talk yourself out of furthering your education, take a look at these reasons to go back to school and follow your dreams!
1. Age Doesn’t Matter
One of the reasons to go back to school is that age no longer matters. Many people use the excuse “I’m too old to go back,” but that just isn’t the case anymore. My English class had 40 people in it, 5 of us were in our 20s, 2 were in their 30s and 1 was nearly 60! As I said above, my mom is 48 and just started and she LOVES it! It’s still funny to hear her say “I can’t go with you today, I have homework to do.” She has made an incredible amount of friends of all ages and people love her and think it’s so cool that she just started going to school. Personally, I’m so proud of her I can’t even express it! She was just inducted into the national honor society and finishes up her first full year this month. Trust me, if my mom can do it after raising 4 kids and dealing with exhaustive health issues, you most definitely can do it too!
