Many people told me that it was never too late to go back to school. I always thought that if you didn’t go into post-secondary right after high school, it was too late. Taking a few years would make it too challenging and keeping up with classes would be much harder as I had been out of the schooling world.
I returned to college six years after I graduated. And as it turns out those people were right, it is never too late to return to school.
For those of you who are wavering on whether or not going back to school would be the right decision for you, there are a few definite advantages you have over those who jump right into college after high school.
First of all you have lived. You have spent some time living in the real world and this gives you all kinds of practical skills.
Taking a little time off from education also gives you time to figure out who you are and where you want to go.
More often than not mature students are the most dedicated to their studies because they know what they want and what they have to do to get there.
If you have a goal of getting a diploma or becoming successful in a certain career, do not stop yourself just because of your age. Education has no age limits and it is never too late to invest in your future.
Lethbridge College is full of students who are all different ages and from all different walks of life. If you are interested and would like to speak with someone, academic advisors are available to speak to you about Lethbridge College programs, services and admissions details, or post-secondary education in general.
