Congratulations! I hope you enjoyed your studies and are VERY proud of your 4.0 GPA

I sometimes think that returning/adult students are the BEST students because they really appreciate their courses - I know I felt that way when I went back to school for another degree. It was a very different - and richer - experience from my earlier years in college.

I like your idea of taking your health and well-being as seriously as you did your education. I'm sure you'll pull a four-point yet again.

Congratulations!! The 4.0 is hard for adults to get--we don't like to do BS and some college assignements can be just that! Great job!!! Good luck--if you have that kind of dedication, getting healthy will be easy for you!

I'm 51 years old and Saturday I will graduate with my Bachelors of Science with a 4.0GPA. I'm going to give my health the same attention that I gave to school and I'm going to graduate to a new and healthier person, a day at a time.

After working my entire life and raising my children, it's time for me to concentrate on my future. With the support of my husband and children, I know that I'll succeed.
