Smaller Class Sizes
Statistics show summer classes aren’t as crowded with students as fall classes. Students enrolled in summer classes are usually older adults serious about their learning and education. When you’re an older adult student enrolled in summer courses you’re likely to find your fellow students are around the same age as you are and have similar goals and aspirations.
Mentors not “Study Buddies”
Adult students rekindling their education quest are more receptive to a mentor rather than a study buddy. At this time in life you’re familiar with how you learn and how you study. You don’t need someone to teach you how to study or to ensure that you study. You need someone to help you explore your path, preferably someone who has gone through what you’re going through or at least understands what you’re going through and can offer valid solutions.
Working adults with families who are continuing their education may not have time to attend traditional colleges. E-learning programs like those created by Leanforward.com can be the perfect solution for adults with little time to attend traditional classes. The online convenience allows you the flexibility to learn almost anywhere. The cost of an online class can also be considerably less than that of traditional colleges.
The bottom line is, it’s never to late to continue your education. Summer is as good a time as any to jump right in and get started on finishing your educational goals. Go for it!
