College is hard…NOT!

An 11-year old has graduated from college…with 3 degrees:

Tanishq Abraham graduated from high school at age 10, and now has his sights set on a medical degree.  He told KCRA he wasn’t intimidated by taking classes with students twice his age.

“Even on the first time I came to a college class, I wasn’t really nervous, so, this isn’t much of a big thing to me,” Abraham said.

Abraham graduated with a perfect 4.0 GPA…

Granted, American River College isn’t an Ivy League school.  Heck, it’s not even a 4-year school.  But don’t let that fool you into thinking it’s 13th grade:

Current enrollment is 35,000 full-time and part-time students, making it one of the largest community colleges in California. ARC has published its own literary journal since 1984, the American River Review, which has won numerous national awards and recognitions, including the National Pacemaker Award from the Associated Collegiate Press and Gold Crowns from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association.

It is the choice of many students in the greater Sacramento area, serving as a launching point for later transfer to competitive four-year universities such as the University of California, Davis and California State University, Sacramento. It transfers more students to UC Davis and CSU Sacramento than any other community college.

So the next time your kid calls home to tell you how hard college is, tell him/her this story.  And then ask for a refund for all of the tuition money that they have wasted getting drunk and hooking up with strangers.
