Transcript 10 MANY HAPPY Going back to school after many years of being out has been a task many students had to face. To some it was a challenge^ to others it has been an improvement. hey say it is never too late. "They" were the growing number of older students attending the university . As of 1990 there were more than 15,000 students over the age of 25. Thirty-one year old Fred Draper, Junior RTV major said, "I went to school first back in 1979 and I was young, wild, first time out of the house, and I kind of let everything slide and got put on academic probation. And now I'm a more serious student because I'm older and will be competing with younger people for jobs so my standards must be higher to compete in my field/7 Thirty-eight year-old Kathy Allen said, "You tend to relax more and you don't worry about social acceptance. I feel more comfortable the second time around. The first time I never even talked to my Academics professors. I was too scared or I didn't want to feel stupid." There were as many reasons for going back to school as there were people who did it. Blanchard Short, a 35 year-old returning student said "Mostly I came back for that piece of paper. I'm a better student now, my habits are much improved, and when it's your dime you tend to make the best of it." The older students enriched the academic atmosphere at the University of Houston. Their experiences added much to the classroom and their presence helped narrow the gap between the generations. It wasn't at all uncommon to see younger and older stu- dents interacting together on campus.David Sykes Returning student Dixie Cox takes her daughter, Sharna, 6, to many UH events.
