28 Members of Congress Have No College Degree
To become a U.S. senator a person must be at least 30 years old, an American citizen for nine years and a resident of the state they want to represent. House members must be at least 25 years old, a U.S. citizen for seven years and a resident of their state. But in neither case do they have to be a college graduate, which is a good thing for 5% of all members of Congress.
