We Have Located the Greatest University, Ever

Located in Lund, Sweden.  The story comes from thelocal.se
A chemistry professor at Lund University dispatched a team of mercenaries into an Islamic State (also known as IS, Isis or Daesh) war zone to free one of her doctoral students and his family.
Charlotta Turner, professor in Analytical Chemistry, received a text message from her student Firas Jumaah in 2014 telling her to to assume he would not finish his thesis if he had not returned within a week. 
While credit goes to the professor [and a nomination for Greatest Professor of All Time!] it turns out the university has access to mercenaries.

 

Lund University

Motto: Do NOT mess with our grad students!

The article continues:

She contacted the university’s then security chief Per Gustafson. “It was almost as if he’d been waiting for this kind of mission,” Turner said. “Per Gustafson said that we had a transport and security deal which stretched over the whole world.”

Over a few days of intense activity, Gustafson hired a security company which then arranged the rescue operation. A few days later two Landcruisers carrying four heavily-armed mercenaries roared into the area where Jumaah was hiding, and sped him away to Erbil Airport together with his wife and two small children.

Other family members were left behind, but survived.

And to think, I waited 4 weeks for a certified transcript from Fayetteville State.
