    I think it is fantastic. I believe that it is never to late to receive a degree. I am a baby boomer who went back to get a degree in education. I really enjoy learning. We learn new things everyday.

    I'm returning to school this fall after many years away. I will be 67 when I start in late August as a freshman, too. More power to him–and I hope we both do well.
