Most Students Over Age 25

Not all students set out for college immediately after high school graduation. Some enlist in the military, spend time in the work force or take time off to travel the world. For those who choose to go to college later in life, having classmates who reflect their age, interests and experiences can help ease the transition from the "real world" to the world of an undergraduate student. Of the colleges and universities that are part of the current U.S. News Best Colleges rankings, the schools on this list had the highest percentage of undergraduate students over the age of 25 in the 2012-2013 academic year.
