Hunter College is a great school for older adults returning to college. I am 32 years old and going back to school after years of working in the private sector. I feel very comfortable in this endeavor as there are many adults in my classes who are my age and older.

Hunter is mostly attended by non-traditional students who work part or full time while pursuing their degree, often older students with families and/or children. Hunter isn't great at offering services to night/weekend only students, and class selection is sometimes limited, but if you plan your class schedule ahead and research previous class calendars, you can graduate on time. You have to be dedicated to your class work and willing to sacrifice personal desires to do well, but most teachers understand the average student's situation and are willing to work with you.
