I get up at 4 AM, and I walk two miles at that hour. That doesn't mean everyone has to get up at 4 AM, but you do have to have some kind of a routine. If you sleep through your morning classes, you'll be running around trying to make up for lost time.

Michael Nicholson has 30 degrees, including 19 master's degrees and one doctorate. Michael Nicholson is a 75-year-old man who loves college.

He was enrolled in school for 55 years straight and has 30 degrees in total. Here is his advice to the class of 2020. 
Even if you love school, you’re probably not on the level of Michael Nicholson, who took his love of learning to astounding heights: The 75-year-old has enrolled in school for 55 years straight, earning 30 degrees along the way, he revealed to Vice. The degrees include one bachelor’s degree, two associate degrees, 23 master’s degrees, three specialist degrees, and one doctorate.

Advice

Of course, a guy with this much education probably knows a thing or two about school and he wants to share his secrets, so he wrote a piece for Vice sharing his biggest advice. For instance, he points out that people tend to get distracted by eating and looking at social media on their computers during lectures. “I can see why teachers get frustrated,” he says. “They're lecturing and giving material out, and the students are looking at their computers, looking at a whole lot of other things at the same time. Back in my time, you didn't dare fool around. Today, anything goes.”
Michael also offered these nuggets of wisdom:
  • Study something that truly interests you. “Otherwise, you’ll probably drop it along the way,” he says.
  • Don’t fight with your roommate. Even if you don’t like them, they can probably teach you something.
  • Listen to people. “It's amazing what you'll learn if you can keep your mouth shut,” he says.
But his final advice is probably the most important: “Stay in school. Stay in for as long as you can.”
