Vin Diesel Receives Honorary Doctorate From The City University.
Hollywood actor Vin Diesel receives honorary PhD from Hunter College, 30 years after dropping out without a degree.
Page Six reports that he had attended the school for three years in the 1980s, but ultimately dropped out to focus on his acting career.
Speaking to the students while receiving his degree, the Vin said:
While I was in Hollywood I always had this pride of Hunter College.
I would tell everybody that I learned and took so much away from my experience at Hunter College: I was young, I was a bouncer, when I wasn’t bouncing I was in these classrooms with the most diverse student body on the planet.
We’re strivers. We can overcome anything. You learn that here and you take into the world. And then you can look at Hollywood and change the face of Hollywood. You can literally change the face of Hollywood because of that dignity and pride and willingness to fight.
