re: Janitor graduates from Columbia
that's a great story ... i love seeing things like this .. it is never too late to get your degree ..

i saw a story on TV over the weekend about a 90+ year old fella that finished his degree .. they had to go back over like 72 years and piece together his various college stops and decided he was a candidate with just a few more classes and he did it ..

When did janitors start making $22 an hour?

It's Manhattan, that's why he makes $22.

$22 an hour, in NYC, at 52 years old is not a whole lot of money.

Props to him on finishing a degree though, truly an inspiration.

So.. Basically he received free tuition because he worked for the university?

New plan for the young LSUAlum2001's: Go to work as a Janitor at Columbia.

freaking awesome!

stupid question but how did he get in to Columbia in the first place? Was he just taking a course here and there? Not sure how that works.

He worked there. He was also in law school in his native country, so he's probably pretty smart.
