World War I aviator, Eddie Rickenbacker, once motivated
young pilots by saying that “Courage is doing what you’re
afraid to do. There can be no courage unless you’re scared”
(Smith 12).If fear is necessary for courage, then many
students starting their college careers are certainly courageous.
Two types of college students are the recent high school
graduate and the returning student who seeks a new
Both the recent high school graduate and the
returning student play important roles in the
college classroom. With motivation and
perseverance, they, like Eddie Rickenbacker,
can overcome their fears and achieve their
Do you remember what it was like the first day of your
first college class? Were you surprised to find so many
students of varying age and background? Many of
today’s college classrooms feature an intergenerational
student population. Two types of college students are
the eighteen-year-old who just graduated from high
school and the returning student who seeks a new
Both the recent high school graduate and the returning student have important contributions to make in any college class. Eventually, however, age diversity will not be as surprising because returning students will outnumber eighteen-year-olds in many classrooms. As the economy becomes more diverse and increasingly international, more workers will return to the classroom for retraining, and the average age of a college student will continue to climb.
According to this year’s college admissions booklet,
the average student age at FIU is 28.3 years, which means that many students in FIU’s classrooms are over the age of 30. Most of these mature students have discovered that they need to upgrade their job skills if they are to compete in an increasingly technological society. Consequently, they find themselves in classes with younger students. Two types of college students are the recent high school graduate and the returning student who seeks a new career.
STATISTIC BRIDGE THESIS
As the demands on the workforce continue to
take a technological turn, universities will see a climb in the average age of their students. Because so many individuals in their late 20’s seek to enhance their professional lives through education, the averageFIU student can look forward to sharing his/her university experience with peers who already know what it’s like in the “real world.”
Reference to Statistic
When thinking of a freshmen classroom, many people envision rows of eighteen-year-olds eager to begin their college experience.However, the average age of a freshman at most colleges and universities is well above eighteen.Many men and women are coming back to the classroom after an absence of many years. Some want to learn a new skill while others pursue a particular academic interest alongside the younger students.Two types of college students are the recent high school graduate and the returning student who seeks a new career.
Clearly, the recent high school graduate is not the only type of student in the university classrooms today. As the workforce demands more technological skills, the traditional eighteen-year-old students will find themselves studying side by side with those who have returned to build up their career credentials.
