Non-traditional students may face a few obstacles when they go back to school. Since many have been out of school for years, maybe since they were teenagers, it can be a little daunting. Try not to let the age difference between you and your fellow students worry you. It may not bother them as much as it bothers you, so try not to make an issue out of it. Also, as more adult people decide to return to school, you may find yourself with other people closer to your age.
