When I was watching the vice presidential debate, I was amazed by how intelligent and articulate Joe Biden came across. Thus, it surprised me to find out that Biden didn’t do particularly well in college at all.
Biden attended the University of Delaware at Newark, where he earned a degree in history and political science in 1965. According to Paul Taylor’s See How they Run: Electing the President in an Age of Mediaocracy, Biden graduated 506 out of 688 in his class. Somehow, he managed to get into the Syracuse University College of Law. There, he admits that he underperformed as a law student, unlike Barack Obama, who graduated magna cum laude from Harvard Law.
Common Misspellings: Joseph Biden, Joseph Biden Jr., Jo Biden, Joe Byden, Joe Bidin
