Inside a classroom at Cal State Long Beach, there's a student who doesn't sound like any other.

Harold Katz has his notebook and computer out, an iPhone in his pocket and an Apple Watch on his wrist. He's a World War II veteran with two degrees, who's lived through many of the American presidencies covered in his political science class. He's also 94.

We recently caught up with Katz to talk about his routine as a student, how he ended up at Long Beach State and what keeps him going. Listen to the audio for the full interview.
