Adults with some life experience, no someone just out of high school. I think if someone is young they should experience a college campus atmosphere with those their own age, and leave the night school to those who didn't get a chance to go to a traditional campus. Neither is better or worse than the other, I just think that a University of Phoenix atmosphere is more appealing for working adults.
Any one who wishes to better his education level. Any one needing to switch careers, due to an injury and surgery. Any one with a thirst for knowledge. Any one who just wants to learn something new. So many things are out there to be learned. In my mid 40's, learning is much easier than in my 20's. Life experince helps out a lot.
