Josiah Bartlet Presidential Library
The president Josiah Barlet had the opportunity to study in Williams, Harvard, and Yale but he chose the University of Notre Dame. This university normally ranks between the top 25 in the U.S. News and World Report survey of America's best colleges. The University has a gothic architecture and park-like landscape (1250 acres). It is a catholic conservative university.
At first the president wanted to be a priest but after meeting his future wife, he decided otherwise. Josiah Barlet graduated summa cum laude with a B.A. in American studies and a minor in theology. Afterwards, he obtained a Master and Ph.D. in economics from the London School of Economics. In addition, he received an Honorary Doctorate in Humane Letters from Dartmouth College, where he was a professor before engaging his life in politics.  He speaks four languages.
