When Mandela was college-aged, the University College of Fort Hare was one of the most respected academic institutions that a black South African could attend.  The Regent sent both his own son and Mandela to study here.

When the Regent decided on wives, for both young men, they resisted his authority and fled to Johannesburg - causing a great deal of trouble for themselves.

Mandela did not graduate from Fort Hare.  He graduated from the University of Witwatersrand.
