Dillard Griffin is 92 years old. He started UNC in 1934, but just a few weeks before he graduated in 1938, a pretty girl caught his heart. He will finally graduate this weekend with a business degree, 75 years after starting his college career.

"Finally, it feels like an accomplishment, and now I can tell people I'm a graduate of the University of North Carolina."
