Wentz went to DePaul University after graduating from high school in 1997, there, he studied political science before leaving a quarter of the way through to focus on Fall Out Boy. 

The singer used to bunk classes and get involved in smoking marijuana with his mates regularly. He was slowly envisioning himself amid the wrong crowd of people. Thankfully, later he got decisive over giving up the use of marijuana as it heavily caused interference to his academics. 

From a young age, Wentz seemed to be exceptionally talented in soccer. Football was a passion jotted down in his priority list, but he had an ethereal love indulged for music, too, so he decided to opt for his musical journey instead of football. 

He did not give up on his hobby for the sport, but he just did not take it as a career choice over music. In one of the interviews, when asked in contrast of both his passions, he stated,

"The ball and I have always had a special relationship. It didn't, however, feel like an adventure. The music presented a greater challenge and, as a result, was more engaging."
