What happens when someone grows up too fast, and gets the order of life wrong? What happens when this person returns to college as an 'Old Dog'? To the 'Old Dog,' education takes on a very different perspective. Education becomes more meaningful than it may be to someone who is young, and un-jaded by the realities of life. The 'Old Dog' sees life much differently than the idealistic one who views life as it 'should be,' rather than as it is. When Christian counseling is the focus of the education, the 'Old Dog' has a distinct advantage over the young pups.
