John Rooney, an emeritus professor of psychology at La Salle University in Philadelphia and co-author of the book, "Preparing for College: Practical Advice for Students and their Families." Rooney graduated from La Salle College with a bachelor's degree in 1946 and earned his Ph.D. from Temple University in 1956. He remembers money being tight in college. "If I had to do it over, I think I would have waited to get married until I completed my graduate study," Rooney says. "There was considerable time pressure and financial pressure on both of us during those early years. Then again, we were young and in love."
