Talk about a super senior.
Kathy Vitzthum is graduating from Iowa State University this spring after a grand total of 19 years in school.

Kathy began taking classes 19 years ago to fulfill her ill fathers wish that she graduate from college. Why has it taken so long? She has taken one class, every semester, for 19 years.
Says Iowa State, "Vitzthum has taken about one class each and every semester since. For 40 semesters. Since Miley Cyrus was born. Since Charles and Diana split up. Since Ross Perot pulled out his charts and pointer on TV. Since the World Wide Web was in its infancy (and text only)."
Kathy, 48, will graduate with a degree in accounting. Get it girl.
