If you only had one class left to take in school, what would it be? During this graduation season,  Southwestern University President Dr. Ed Burger and KUT's Jennifer Stayton explore what that last class could - or should? - be, and making the transition from formal education to lifelong learning.

Ed and Jennifer reflect on the last classes they took in their formal educations (Jennifer's may surprise you; Ed's probably won't!). Click here to hear the full episode, including the latest puzzler. Hint: a little math along the way in school may help with this one.
