College Seniors: Older adults take to the campus (Atlanta Senior Life)
KENNESAW, Ga. (Sep 2, 2018) — Peter Kruszka wanted to earn a college degree when he was younger, but, well, sometimes plans change.
After graduating from high school in New York back in the 1960s, Kruszka went straight to work. He later joined the Navy, got married, raised a family and had a career working with computers. Along the way, he picked up college courses at a half dozen different schools, but never had the time to collect enough credits to earn a diploma.
