President James Garfield's education
#1
I learned something new and interesting:

Quote:Another president, James Garfield, paid his way through college in 1851 by persuading his school, the Western Reserve Eclectic Institute, to let him be the janitor in exchange for tuition. He did the job every day smiling and without a hint of shame. Each morning, he’d ring the university’s bell tower to start the classes — his day already having long begun — and stomp to class with cheer and eagerness.

Within just one year of starting at the school he was a professor — teaching a full course load in addition to his studies. By his twenty-sixth birthday he was the dean.

From this article which is not about education.

What a school name.
Working on second TESU degree. Graduate in Sept? Dec?
First Masters complete. Working on another?
TESU BSBA (with ASNSM) in March 2018.
