Where the Senate went to College

January 30
Below is a fun map and infographic from the folks at College Raptor.

Three observations:

1) The state with the senators who went to the best schools? Minnesota. And Wisconsin needed to send one of its senators to get educated in Minnesota. Take that, Bucky.*

2) Not as many Ivy Leaguers as you might think — only 18 percent.

3) About six in 10 senators went to college in-state.

(Note: The map includes only where senators obtained undergraduate degrees from. Two senators — John Boozman of Arkansas and Rand Paul of Kentucky — never completed their undergraduate degrees, but do have advanced degrees.)
