Gilbert_Sundevil,

My late father, who was a very smart man, once told me that you can get a good/ great education at any college/ university. He told me that "You get out of an education, what you put into it." Therefore, he felt that he received as good an education from the University of Arkansas, than anyone of his fellow aeronautical engineering buddies, at Air Reasearch/ Garrett/ Honeywell did at their respective universities.

I felt that I received a great education from ASU, and taught at the high school level for 27 years before retiring in May, 2016. I chuckle when people scoff at the notion that they had a better education because they went to a Big Ten, or Ivy League school, and I went to lowly, ASU. Many of those same people are still working, while I'm comfortably retired (I made good choices with my finances while teaching) to set up for an early retirement. Now, I get to go watch my Sun Devils play football. Go Sun Devils!
