2020 may be remembered as the year of Coronavirus, but let’s not forget that this is also a presidential election year.

So, this seems as good a time as any to go through the list and discuss the 28 schools that have produced the most Presidents in the U.S.

Before we get started it is very important to clarify a few particularities in this list.

Although 2020 will see whether Joe Biden becomes the 46th US president or President Trump remains as the 45th, the U.S. has technically only had 44 different presidents.


Well, this is simply because Grover Cleveland’s two non-consecutive terms as U.S, President are counted separately.

It is important to mention that a total of 8 U.S. Presidents reached this office without having earned a university degree.

The list of non-university graduate U.S. Presidents who became commanders in chiefs is made up of George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Andrew Jackson, Martin Van Buren, Zachary Taylor, Millard Fillmore, Andrew Johnson, and the previously-mentioned Grover Cleveland.
