“What is it like to go back to school as a mature student?”


Shawn attends a public college. Watch as he discusses his experience being a mature student and becoming involved in cultural activities.

If you have been out of school for a while, chances are you already have many responsibilities and roles such as worker, homemaker, spouse, friend, parent and volunteer.

Adding the role of student to your already busy schedule will take some planning and creative time management.
