For 49-year-old sports journalism major Aaron James and 33-year-old nursing major Joelene Quinn learning is not limited by age. James and Quinn are both in their first semester at ASU.

They are among approximately 10% of undergraduate students over the age of 25, according to the ASU Common Data Set. While some may find returning to school difficult, both James and Quinn said they thrived in this experience.
