Earning a college degree has been a dream of mine since I graduated from high school. For various reasons, this dream was continuously squelched. It wasn't until I turned 31 that I was able to enroll. What are your college plans? Did you attend right out of high school? Are you like me and enrolling later in life? Why? What are some of the challenges you've faced? My biggest challenge has been time management.

Sort of. I went back to school and got my history degree 3 years ago. I have been working part-time at a Masters. Started this crazed journey in 2000 at the age of 41. I found that, since I was old and married, it was pretty easy for me to excel in class. I didn't worry about the evening kegger like the first time around (I first went to university in 1978). I had a lot of fun and both the professors and the kids treated me well. Best of luck to you, just don't be like me and take History, damn few jobs for an expert in German politics 1919-1939.
