Susan Porter is about to graduate from Cornell University.  She is a non-traditional student, entering college for the first time while in her 50's.  

Susan ran Town Fryer, a restaurant near downtown Cleveland prior to enrolling in three online classes at 
Tri-C.  She explains how Cornell pursued her  to enroll there, and how her story wound up in a chapter of Marlo Thomas' book It Ain't Over... Till It's Over: Reinventing Your Life - and Realizing Your Dreams - Anytime, at Any Age.
