I was not going to many of the courses I was supposed to in my freshman and sophomore year.  I was going to a lot of interesting courses the seniors were taking, getting a good education on a graduating level, and of course, being marked absent and failing my required courses.  They didn’t like that.  And, they gave me a choice: go to the courses I was supposed to, or leave. So I left. I was the one being educated;  I thought I should have some say as to the nature of my education.  Foolish notion.
