It is somewhat better to see adult students going to school rather than just young adults straight out of high school entering school, mostly community colleges, because they have a deeper grasp with their education than most young adults.
1) The difference between young adults and older adults is that some of them, not all of them have a deeper grasp on life, responsibilities and also what is expected from them at any moment and how they can make things better for themselves with an education.
The best part about this is that it makes teachers that much more willing to teach them, because they know that those students are there for all the right reasons and that they are willing and ready to fight for their grades at the same time.
2) Another thing that makes them better students is that they have a greater chance at making more of themselves than others, because unfortunately many people think that since they do not have a certain job that pays them a certain amount of money, that they do not need to have a job like that yet.
3) As much fun as it is to have that train of thought, and to also be able to keep thinking that any person can do as they please in school, there is something to keep in mind at all times: as bad as the economy is and as slowly but steady as it is taking for it to go back to the way it was, more and more people are finding all kinds of opportunities to make money and get a job, just by doing well in school.
4) Another thing to keep in mind is how often and how well a person can have job offers when they stay in school and are closer to graduating and also to making more mature decisions. This is something to keep in mind whenever a person thinks about the things that they think do not matter in school all the time.
5) One other thing that helps change the mindset of many people is how a person is able to have a more productive future when they take school more seriously than what they already do. This is something that every person should keep in mind whenever they want to take school or their degrees more seriously at any point.
Among other points, the more people finish their education, the more that the can concentrate on their future.
