My outstanding parents provided me with room and board during my first 2 years at UIC 1966-1968, weekends during my first semester at NIU in 1969, and the summer of 1969.  That enabled me to work, to earn, and to save enough money to a) buy a new 1968 Oldsmobile in 1967, b) buy a new 1969 Dodge Charger SE in 1968, and c) graduate debt-free from NIU in August of 1970 owning the aforesaid 1969 Dodge Charger SE.)
