In 1973, Steve Jobs attended classes for less than six months at this private liberal arts college. After deciding to drop out, Jobs was able to attended classes that interested him rather than his core requirement classes. He later cited dropping in on a calligraphy class as extremely influential in developing multiple fonts for the Mac.

While living as a drop-out, Jobs collected empty glass bottles for the deposit, slept on the floor in friends' rooms, explored Eastern mysticism, and occasionally took LSD.
