In 1975, a young Mitch Albom, a freshman student at Brandeis University, walked into a sociology class taught by Morrie Schwartz. After seeing that there were only 9 students in the classroom, Mitch sized up the situation and - thinking that the class was much too small - turned to head out of the classroom.
