Man Pursues His 30th College Degree

Many students can’t wait to be done with school, but not Michael Nicholson.
The 71-year-old Michigan man has earned 29 college degrees and is now
pursuing his 30th:

"I just stayed in school and took menial jobs to pay for the
education and just made a point of getting more degrees and eventually
I retired so that I could go full-time to school," Nicholson told

"It’s stimulation to go to the class, look at the material
that’s required and meet the teacher and students. It makes life interesting
for me," he said. "Otherwise, things would be pretty dull."

Nicholson has one bachelor’s degree, two associate’s degrees, 22
master’s degrees, three specialist degrees and one doctoral degree.
