TU welcomes "seasoned" students in to audit courses

Posted: Updated:
THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Folks 65 and older can now audit classes free of charge at Thomas University.

The university recently decided to lower the age from 70 to give more seniors a chance to take part in the learning process.

“The diversity of ages makes such a difference in the life experiences that people bring to the discussions and it's great for our traditional students, as well as our non-traditional age students, and auditing seniors, makes things that much more interesting,” said executive vice president Ann Landis.

Auditing a course allows you to take the class without receiving a grade or credit for the course.
