Back in 2016 Nick Cannon made the announcement that he enrolled in the HBCU:

This month, he took to Twitter to share his excitement for the major accomplishment of getting his degree in exactly 4 years:

“I graduated from Howard University @howarduniversity1867 today! Received a degree in Criminology/Administration of Justice and minor in Africana Studies! Had the opportunity to speak at the virtual ceremony, Master and PHD! #HU2020.”

He also spoke during the  Howard University virtual graduation ceremony, and shares his goal of obtaining a master’s degree and Ph.D. next.

“I am always seeking new challenges and continual growth and decided to obtain my first college degree from an institution that has a proven legacy of producing great minds. I have friends, mentors, and colleagues who attended Howard University. I look forward to this new journey in my life and am excited about the possibilities ahead.”

He shared a popular quote from Nelson Mandela about how powerful education, stating that as his inspiration to enroll in College, back in 2016:

“Nelson Mandela once said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world’ and with that said I have officially enrolled at Howard University.”

Congrats to Nick Cannon on the major accomplishment!
