    NO!  It is a good idea just think of all the young stuff you will meet!

    My first class at Community College when I was 18 was Math 092. A guy in there was 83. You can never be too old for a college education.

    76 is the perfect age to do whatever you want.  If you want to go to college -- GO FOR IT!

    No such thing as too old for anything.  So long as you are still physically capable of it, do what you want to do.

    In my opinion, yes. 76 is the age where most people would want to be retired and not pursuing a career.

    Depends.  Do you still have all your marbles ?

    Of course not. Lots of seniors go back to school to complete "the degree they always wanted," or to keep the brain cells firing on all synapses, or to explore something new. Also, some schools allow seniors to audit courses (space available basis) for free - no credit, no degree, but a chance to get involved, learn something new, etc.

    You may run into students older than you. Earning a degree in your 80s is not as impossible or as unknown as many people think. So go back to school & enjoy it!

    Nope.  Matter of fact, many state universities give free tuition to seniors who want to take courses.  Forget about living in the dorms and joining fraternities and the like, but you can certainly attend.  Many professors like having older students in their classes, as they tend to be hard working, and willing to offer different perspectives, particularly in history and political science courses.

    No, because you're never too old to learn and go with all our best wishes.
