BS Business Management, TCU, 1975. I finished college 15 years after graduating from High School. Since I had 3 kids and a full-time job when I started, I attended (most of it) night school.

What part of the above do you feel embarrassed about? I missed it.

Lots of folks take their time. Lots of low profile colleges can offer great educations. It's all good.

You have to admit, Boca Raton sounds funny.. personally, I giggled when I said 'rat-on' in my head. Not laughing out loud mind you, just childish giggling

The important thing is not the name on the college but what you got out of it. I know one person who graduated from an Ivy League school umpteen years ago who moved back with his parents and never left. I think that that's a lot more embarassing.

UCLA, BA in Psychology. I think tuition ("registration fees") were raised to approx $400 per quarter in 1983, and the students were protesting on Bruin Walk due to the outrageous increase in prices.

Later I attended a couple of military schools courtesy of Uncle Sam.

Cal State University, San Marcos in the hizzouse! BA in Economics.

I'm currently getting my M.S. in CIS from Boston University <cough> on-line <cough>.

Glad I went to San Marcos State, though. Met a friend who invited me to her birthday party, met her best friend who ended up being DW. By the way, that friend is no longer friends with either of us.

And I was part of student government - yes, that sad popularity contest where we make grave decisions with our $7,500 budget....
