Stories of older students enrich UCLA’s Class of 2014

Two of the oldest undergraduate students in UCLA’s Class of 2014 share their stories:

Andrew Florez, 69, is the oldest undergraduate student graduating this year. After health issues made him rethink what he wanted to do with the rest of his life, he applied to UCLA with the desire to spend that time doing something he loves.

Robert Skeels, 48, is one of the oldest returning undergraduate students to graduate this year. Despite the challenges of being a returning student, he chose to come back to UCLA and finish the degree in classical civilization that he began almost 20 years ago.
