BOCA RATON, Fla. -- While 87-year-old Jack Slotnick is the oldest student at Lynn Campus, he may also be the most popular.
He was given a ticket to the Presidential Debate by the University's President.
Slotnick said the first Presidential speech he remembers is Franklin Delano Roosevelt, but he won't say who he'll vote for in this election.
What he did say is that he hopes this debate will teach the younger students on campus a lot.
"History has become a second world for them now. Everything is technology, and space age, and new fangles machines. But the important fact is that from history we learn hopefully not repeat yesterday's mistakes," he said.
Slotnick will be the oldest person to walk the stage when he graduates in May.
"President Roosevelt doing the WPA. That's a long time ago, eh?"
At 87 years old, Slotnick tries to teach the incoming students a thing or two.
"There's nothing wrong with holding the door for the student behind you, it's called consideration!"
While plenty of students are learning from Slotnick every day, he said watching the debate on his own campus taught him a thing or two.
"How excited this entire community became over the debate, and making Lynn known all over the world!"
