Education

Gig has a private high school and private college education but claims he was not a great student. When discussing his education he describes himself as “just a jock”. He also says that he only has a Bachelors degree while his brother and sister both have Master’s. Gig applied to Harvard University, his sister was attending and Harvard recruited Gig to play sports, but he was not accepted.

In his Freshman year Gig attended Bucknell Collegenow known as Bucknell University, which is one of the best academic institutions in the country with one of the lowest college admissions acceptance rates.

Attending American University was great exposure to the world with many students in attendance from different countries. Gig had a roommate who was there to learn English from Venezuela, and another year he had one with the same goal from Columbia. Gig thinks he recalls a student telling him that one of the floors in his first dormitory spoke 13 different languages. Gig believes that particular dormitory, which he lived in during the first semester after he transferred, was known as the International dorm. In total, Gig thinks he lived in 4 dormitories at American University before moving off campus.
