College Education of U.S. Presidents

So, where did the American Presidents go to college? Not all did. However, the majority did attend and graduate from an institution of higher education. College Education of U.S. Presidents lists the colleges and universities attended by the Presidents of the United States.

From the site:

The 2008 presidential election made me interested in the educational pedigree of past Presidents of the United States. Analyzing the facts, I discovered eight presidents did not graduate from college, including William Harrison, Harry Truman, Zachary Taylor, Grover Cleveland, Andrew Johnson and Millard Fillmore. George W. Bush has obtained diplomas from Yale and Harvard. Abraham Lincoln and Andrew Jackson never attended law school, but their vigorous independent study enabled them to become lawyers. Eleven Presidents studied law and only one President completed medical school.
