    The classes can be challenging (in a good way!) depending on who your professors are. Again, the professor can make or break the class. Because classes are so much less expensive here, you can take a variety of classes and explore your interests without worrying about wasting a ton money.

    This is my first year in school where I have instructors that are literally my age and/or younger. With knowing older people who are going back to school this seems to be a more common thing these days. I actually appreciate this age difference. In both of my classes in which this occurs, they obviously know what they are talking about which is always nice coming from the person teaching the course, but they often offer methods and perspectives that I can better relate to. This relateability makes taking in the course material that much easier and less intimidating. Besides the courses being less intimidating, it also makes approaching the teacher less intimidating as well, which when you are struggling with course material can mean all the difference in turning your progress around.
