Ben Franklin started the University of P

Ben Franklin started the University of PA (Penn) as the 1st secular university in USA. Now Ivy League, it is where son David got PhD. It is one of the more expensive schools in the country, although David didn’t pay them a penny. They invited him into their doctoral program directly out of undergrad at Duke. And from there, he got his amazing teaching position at #GoodGradesDoPay btw … for those of you who follow him, Penn is where Donald Trump went to business school.
