Oldest Louisiana College student to graduate in May

Sue Miller, a senior at Louisiana College is not your typical student. In fact, Sue will celebrate her birthday on Tuesday, March 13th by getting fitted for her graduation cap and gown. This is a special birthday for Sue; she will turn 73 years old on March 13th which means she will be the oldest person to graduate from Louisiana College during its entire 100 year history.

Miller decided on her 70th birthday that she wanted to finish her college work. She originally entered college in the fall of 1951 after a year and a half of school, marriage, two children with another on the way, Miller thought she would go back after the birth of her third child and when things calmed down. “With the encouragement of my children, I took a leap of faith and decided to go back to college at age 70,” said Miller. “It was terrifying and exhilarating at the same time.” She continues “I thought why not go ahead and get my degree. I’m graduating at age 73 with a 50 year hiatus in between.”

It is a coincidence that Sue’s 73rd birthday also falls on the “fitting day” for her cap and gown that she will wear in May. “To walk on the LC campus and feel the energy of the young people and see the beauty of the campus is truly a gift to me,” Miller said. “I’m so enthused about learning that even after I graduate I still want to take more classes, I love learning and challenging myself.”

One of her professors, Jason Meyer, could not agree more, “Sue added so much to class, she is very inquisitive. It was amazing to have someone in the classroom who could say ‘I lived through this event or time period’ she really made the classroom experience three-dimensional for the students.”

Miller goes on to explain, “When I graduate in May we are going to have a big celebration with my family.” Until then, a birthday cake, presents and a cap and gown “fitting” will tide her over.
