This school I'm going to now (not college), is all adults. I am the young one actually (28). I'd say the average age is about 40. By then they should know better.
On the other hand, from their perspective, age gives them better excuses: "it's my kid's preschool -- it could be an EMERGENCY!" Yadda, yadda.
If your Dean gives you one ounce of crap because some immature buttwipes complain about not being able to use their cellphone in class, you don't want to teach there.
