When I started college (1952), I owned the family bull and had no cash. My parents didn’t have any way to help either. The Dean of Men helped me get by the first year. He found me many jobs… replacing windows, working with the city surveyor, washing cars, washing dishes, etc. My main job was working at Jenson Dairy and then had classes til 10am to noon. Yes, my freshman year wasn’t easy and I was thankful to get C’s and B’s.
