How many Swampers share an alma mater with a US President?

By my count:
Giff (Texas State)
Nonlinear (Michigan)
GoodKarma & hdo (Miami)

I must be missing some though.

My alma mater made a big deal about Biden attending their law school during the 2008 campaign.

Not a peep this time around.

Trump never even went to Wharton. He was in Penn undergrad, but never Wharton. He has always lied about that. Shocking, I know.

No Presidents graduated from my school, but Millard Fillmore founded it, and Erik Estrada graduated, so that's close enough.

Does Garfield count? Not the president, but the cat!

And I raise one Estrada with one Letterman.

Wash U has Peter Mutharika, the President of Malawi. Does that count? No US presidents.

If you count Duke (my MBA), I can count Nixon. Wooo.

I have Col. Henry Blake.

And HAL-9000. I win.
And his one problem is he didn’t go to Russia that night because he had extracurricular activities, and they froze to death.

Sure, that counts. I didn’t realize Nixon went to Duke for his law degree. I knew his undergrad was Whittier.

Well, if you limit it to the business school, which probably makes more sense, Duke can't count any presidents, but we have Melinda Gates and Tim Cook, as well as a number of other less famous CEOs.

Isn't Tim Cook randomly (to me anyway) a big SC Gamecocks fan/alum?

McKinley went to Allegheny for a year, for which he was shot.

Looks like he went to Auburn undergrad, so I don't get the SC connection. Oh, speaking of sports connections, Adam Silver went to Duke too, but for undergrad.
