Megan Thee Stallion Wants To Use Her College Degree To Open Several Assisted Living Facilities & Hire New College Graduates

Megan Thee Stallion Reflects On Graduating College: ‘I Did It. I Can’t Believe It. I’m Really A College Graduate’ + Shares How Her Management Team Played an Integral Part In Her Completing Her Degree

Congratulations are in order for Megan Thee Stallion! The 26-year-old Grammy Award winning rapper just graduated on Saturday (12/11)  from  Texas Southern University with a degree in Health Administration- a goal she set to honor both her late mother and late grandmother. Her mother, Holly Thomas, died in March 2019 following a battle with brain cancer and her late grandmother was a teacher.

The “Savage” rapper took to social media on Saturday (12/11) to share the big accomplishment with her fans and supporters. She wrote,

“Good morning hotties !!! It’s graduation dayyyy,”

followed by a clever hashtag



She also shared several photos of her in her cap and gown, a snapshot of her diploma and a video of her walking across the stage to receive her diploma.





A diploma is not the only honor Megan Thee Stallion received this weekend. She also accepted the 18th Congressional District’s humanitarian award in her hometown of Houston, Texas. Megan took to Instagram to share the good news! She wrote,

“Today I was given thee 18th Congressional District of Texas Hero Award by congresswoman @sheilajacksonlee In my hometown HOUSTON TX. Although I appreciate the recognition I’m just happy that I am able to give back to and put smiles on the faces of the people in my city.


In the midst of a celebratory weekend,  Megan The Stallion (born Megan Pete), had a virtual interview with Rolling Stone, in which she explains how she was able to push through and complete her Bachelors degree all while being a music superstar. She admits that due to her hectic schedule, she could only take two classes per semester, but this past semester she ended up taking a full load of five classes, in order to complete her degree faster!

“I feel like I’ve been at school for so long. When I got famous, I had to start taking two classes at a time. This last semester I was like, okay, just give me a full class load because I want to be done. I want to be out of here. And now I’m like, yes, I did it. I can’t believe it. I’m really a college graduate, so I feel good.”

The “Body” rapper gives major credit to her management team for helping her stay on track and making sure she didn’t fall behind with her school work.

“Every time I had an assignment or something due, one of my managers would just pull me to the side and be like, “Hey Megan, you know you got to do this presentation today.” Or “Hey Megan, you know you got to turn this assignment in today.” They would just come up on me at random times telling me what I had to do.”

She continued,

It’s probably good it worked out like that because I don’t like feeling like, oh my gosh, I have to do this, I have to do that. Just spring it on me. I would have not been successful this semester without my team.



Megan The Stallion revealed that there was a period of time when her school administrators didn’t even realize she was a celebrity.

“For a little while they didn’t know I was a rapper until one day I came and I was like, “I think I’m about to go on tour, so is it a way I could continue my degree online? What can I do?” And they were like, what are you talking about?”

She continued,

“I finally told them everything I had going on and they saw it for themselves and they were like, “Oh wow. Well, we do offer these courses online.” The whole time with that, they were super supportive. My Dean, Dr. Rasmus, she was on my butt all the time like an aunt: “You need to do this, make sure you’re doing that.” She definitely helped me throughout the whole way.

As far as her future plans with her Health Administration degree, Megan has a goal to open up several assisted living facilities.

“I’m still going to open up these assisted living facilities and I definitely want to hire new college graduates. Nobody ever wants to hire you fresh out of college. They feel like you have no experience, so I want to create a place where you can get experience.”

Congratulations to Megan The Stallion for achieving this major accomplishment! What are your thoughts? Let us know below.
