At long last, on June 6, John Rebenstorf graduated from Cal State Fullerton. He was on the 10-year plan. Rebenstorf leaves with a well-rounded, if somewhat sprawling, education, his field of expertise encompassing radio communications, electrical engineering, advertising, accounting, contract negotiation, finance, business administration, public relations and self-preservation. He leaves without having paid one cent in tuition. Dues, yes--by the truckload--but tuition, no.
