wallabylass I'm so glad to have found this site! I want to go to college for social work. I had always want to go back for a nursing degree, but at 60 I think it would be hard physically!Jul 12, 2011, 10:39 PM EDT
VIntageHippie I'm finishing my Masters in HIstory, so I"m there with you. My goal is to teach at our local community college and online. I hope to bring technology into the classroom more than they tend to do around here. I also plan to write about rural Appalachia in the first half of the 20th century.Jul 3, 2011, 3:22 PM EDT
DJHill I just joined and although I am new here, I am also seeking to finish college and earn a BA at the college I am attending. Also I will be 58 this year and want to say that you are never too old to try. May 31, 2011, 9:36 PM EDT
Micaela So great to hear of others working on degrees. I have wanted to go on to graduate school, but felt it was "too late" or "I was too old" , I am so encouraged by all of you! I am so glad I am seeing this through the eyes of people my age!! Kudos to you all!!Mar 20, 2011, 2:54 PM EDT
PaulT I applauded anyone who makes the extra effort to get an advanced degree.Mar 11, 2011, 12:06 AM EST
nfitzgerald I have a ways to go to get the degree I want. I have an AA and many units but I am now currently working on getting up there to my BA. I have been raising my 5 grandchildren - it's hard to not put oneself on the back burner ...anyways I am working on itFeb 23, 2011, 9:15 PM EST
LovesToRead I’m also working on my masters after years away from school. This time it is a Masters of Fine Arts, for my satisfaction not to get a job like the first time. I’ve always enjoyed painting and photography so with my kids now in high school I figured it was time to do something for me. I have to say I’m loving it.Feb 17, 2011, 10:42 PM EST Jones1do Jones1do created the topic "Higher Education" with description "I am currently a graduate student obtaining a Masters of Education degree with a concentration in Adult Education.
