....or more specifically, at what point are you a dirty old man / disgraceful old woman?

Being in the union Amnesty society or Chess is one thing - but at what point should you not be on tour?

hahahah. thats hilar. Think the OP meant tour though, as in sports tour.

depends on each individual situation I guess, and who it going. Obvs being 50, and going with a load of 20 year olds I would find a bit awkward, but generally the younger ones don't really care.

Right - but would awkward mean you wouldn't do it?

The average undrgraduate will be in the 20-21 range. A lot of people that call themselves "Mature Students" actually mean "I'm starting a few years late" and are in their mid to late 20s. To me, this doesn't amount to a hill of beans.

What I'm getting at is - in this day and age of anti-discrimination and equal opportunity, is there something wrong with having students in their 30s and 40s mixing it up?

On the one hand, you want to say - "of course not, you're as young as you feel, have a laugh, no-one will care". Which is true to an extent.

On the other hand, we're not talking about lectures or seminars, we're talking about socials and lashing. How does it look to have ten 20 year olds and one 40 year old? What would your parents think?

I haven't had a problem. I'm 31 but my age has not been relevant at all. Granted I've made no attempt to get into an 18 year old's underwear (a bit too young for my liking), but socialising has been fine. They don't get many of my music references though.

I'm 20, but quite mature and never was the kind of person to go out clubbing. It's strange because I talk to some of the people in my class who are barely 18, infact the two people I hang around with most are two 18 year old guys. But on the other hand, I can quite easily and happily have a conversation with some of the people who are nearly 30.

I`m 34 and had no problems on socials - provided you don`t act like a total throbber nobody cares about your age. You`re not 18 so don`t try and act it!

I`ve found almost all the younger students treat me as an equal once they realised i`m not a creepy older guy trying to get in their pants, or going to speak to them as if I was their parent.
How old do you think is too old to try and get into their pants?

Dunno really. Depends on the individuals but i`d think its a bit of a liberty hitting on 18 years olds when you get past 25/26 ish.
Megan fox was banging a 30 year old when she was 18

So long as no-ones getting taken advantage of then game on!
I'll be 24 when I start Uni, so I am a bit worried that I'll be too old for the student lifestyle, especially as I turn 27. Hopefully I won't, as have never had the chance to party, bang 18 year olds etc

See i'm not too sure about this. The big question is when do you become the creepy older guy. Also i dont see how anyone is being taken advantage by virtue of the age difference.

I don`t think you`ll be too old but you might get fed up of it pretty quickly! There`s plenty of opportunity to unleash the inner party animal if you want and there`s certainly plenty of available girls if thats your thing.
Ok cheers man. Do you still party at 34? Do you live in halls?

When your kids are going out clubbing it's time to stop. I always feel awkward when my friends bring their parents out clubbing, it's like 'Shouldn't you be at home knitting and sorting out your bills or something?'

When you're saying 'get down with the kids' you're too old
