105-year-old veteran finally gets college diploma

It's a special milestone 80 years in the making for one veteran. 

At 105-years-old, Bill Vogt is finally receiving his college diploma. 

Vogt finished his studies at San Diego State University at the end of 1934. The school didn't do mid-year graduations, so instead of sticking around, he left to serve in the Navy. 

Now, after 83 years, he's finally getting his diploma. 

Vogt is the last living student who took classes at the school on its original campus.
