Jane Fonda Given Honorary degree from Emerson college, She graduated from the all-girls Emma Willard boarding school in 1955, then enrolled at the women's-only Vassar College, where she rebelled by ditching classes, drinking, and living it up at nearby men's universities. Jane dropped out of Vassar after finishing her sophomore year, then went to Paris to study painting. When that did not work out, Jane returned to New York and got a job as a secretary, but was soon fired. Jane ultimately decided to pursue a film career and was accepted into the Actor's Studio, where she received her training from Lee Strasberg. She did some modeling to pay for the acting classes, and was prominently featured in many major magazines in the late 1950s, including Vogue, Life, Esquire, Harper's Bazaar and Ladies' Home Journal.
