MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) - Nearly seven decades after she started college, an 84-year-old woman graduated, proving it’s never too late to achieve one’s goals.

On May 7, Sandison graduated with a degree in multidisciplinary studies at age 84.

Betty Sandison, 84, graduated from the University of Minnesota about 67 years after she started studying there.

She had to pause her education when she got married but never lost her desire to get her degree.

“Just pure joy, pure joy, pure satisfaction that I had attained my goal of walking across Northrop [Mall],” she said.

Sandison left Renville, her small farm town in central Minnesota in 1955, as the first person in her family to go to college.

She continued taking college courses but didn’t finish her degree, taken off course by meeting her husband and following his career moves. »
