Find Out Which Actors, Singers And Athletes Are Loaded With Diplomas
It’s graduation season and what’s more befitting than a list of your favorite celebrities with honorary degrees? Honorary degrees date as far back as 1478. Universities award highly influential persons with the achievement in hopes of obtaining long-lasting (financial) relationships. Although honorary recipients are discouraged from referring to themselves as “Dr.”, that didn’t stop Benjamin Franklin or the late, great Maya Angelou from tooting their own horns. Check out the list below for more of the pseudo-doctors.
Kerry Washington – George Washington University
John Legend – Howard University & University of Pennsylvania
Denzel Washington – University of Pennsylvania
Aretha Franklin – Princeton, Harvard & Yale
Morgan Freeman – Rhoades College, Boston University & Brown University
Kanye West – Art Institute of Chicago
Oprah Winfrey – Harvard

Mike Tyson – Central State University
Isn’t it great to know they didn’t have to work or pay for it while you crammed a semester’s worth of information into your brain the night before final exams?
