Nick Cannon Just Kicked Off His First Day at Howard University

Nick Cannon is headed back to school as a freshman at Howard University in Washington, D.C.

The 35-year-old actor and rapper took to his Instagram to let fans know that he’d enrolled in the prestigious school and is on track to graduate in 2020.

“YOU KNOW!!!!! #HU2020 My First Day as a Freshman!!! Howard University Class of 2020,” he captioned an image in front of the school, decked out in his back-to-school attire.

Nick, who graduated high school in 1998 and never attended college, is following in the footsteps of his Drumline character who also enrolled in a historically black college.

“Just remember @NickCannon ‘You’re on time if you’re 5 minutes earlier, You’re late if you’re on time!’ #OneBandOneSound PS – Congrats,” his Drumline costar Orlando Jones wrote on his Twitter.

    Good luck to him but why is he dressed like it is fall. It was in the high 70′s this morning in DC.

    Getting an education feels good but I mean, he’ll probably just keep doing Hollywood stuff even after he gets his degree. I doubt he’ll change career paths and become an accountant or something.

    Good on him. It’s never too late to go to college and broaden your education.

    Maybe he’s taking business? Or other fields that come in handy in the entertainment industry?
