Well done loong Paiboon. Make sure you keep a low profile during the hazing and stay away from any "meetings" with rival colleges and you should be fine.

100's of senior citizens doing UNI in Australia this is hardly news.  Would be multi 1000's around the world

Maybe after graduating he can get a job with the cops, producing those amazing poster boards used at press conferences 🙂

In Thailand it is news. Remember that pregnant women, or women with children aren't allowed to study, be it in high school, techno college or university. I worked in a uni here and it is very homogeneous with the students being pretty much the same age at all the various levels. For those who had kids, or were working, there were special evening classes. 

 

So, in a nutshell, it is kinda special for here....

Wow impressive guy, lived in the USA, was a fighter pilot and fought in the Persian gulf war,  ended up being a commercial pilot. Finally an article that gave some background. Maybe the press in Thailand will change... then again.

It is news here.  Thailand is probably one of the most ageist countries in the World, once you are past 50 you are basically finished here as a productive and useful member of society.  They expect you to just fade away.  It always makes me smile when some say that the Thais respect older people.  That is BS, relatives are tolerated, the rest of the older people can go hang.
