About returning to the classroom?
Adult learners often enter the college environment anxious and uncertain about their ability to succeed and compete successfully with more traditional students. However, current research shows that adult students are typically more successful than younger students because of their maturity and the experience that they bring to the classroom. Adults are likely to exhibit high levels of motivation, more specific occupational goals and an uncompromising desire to get the most education possible for their money. Penn State provides a variety of services and activities to help all students succeed in their college experience.
