The President of the United States is usually most well-known for their campaigns, policies or party affiliations. Unless it's something morally unethical or incredibly rare, the press rarely mentions the college life of the leader. It might be absurd to imagine such powerful figureheads at a frat party or hanging out around campus. However, at one point in time, each president was just like any college student working towards their aspirations.
Listed below are the glorious college days of the current and previous presidents.
1. President Donald Trump-University of Pennsylvania
3. President George W. Bush- Yale University, Harvard University
Like his father President George H.W. Bush, President George W. Bush attended Yale. He majored in history, specifically in European and American Studies. During his college years, Bush not only campaigned for his father but also joined his father's fraternity, Delta Kappa Epsilon. In addition, Bush was accepted into Yale's Skulls and Bones, a secret senior student society, and played on the varsity rugby team.
4. President Bill Clinton- Georgetown University, Yale Law School
Graduating in the class of 1932, Ronald Reagan was actually a "C" average economic student. However, Reagan was also balancing his involvement with the fraternity Tau Kappa Epsilon, drama club, swim team and football. In addition, he started his political career during his freshman year by delivering a speech during a student protest that resulted in the resignation of the college president. Later on in undergraduate, Reagan would become the student body president.
