51-year-old Man Graduates From US University, Set Out to Outshine his 22-year-old Colleagues

52-year-old American actor, Anthony Anderson has graduated with a Bachelor’s degree from Howard University in Washington D.C, United States.


Anthony Anderson earned his Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts from the institution’s Chadwick A. Boseman College of Fine Arts.

Speaking about his achievement, Anthony says he celebrated the milestone with his son, Nathan, and fellow Howard graduates at a club near the university.

He opined that he was not going to be outpartied by his 22-year-old colleagues.


“I celebrated by going to a club called ‘Brooklyn’ on U street with my son, my best friend Jerry a.k.a. ‘Skinnyboy’ and several HU 2022 graduates,” he says. “We partied ’till 4 a.m. and for the record, I still got it! I was not going to be out-partied by a bunch of 22-year-olds!”

Anthony explained that he was slightly nervous on his graduation day as the thoughts of the possibility of some officials stopping him from graduating crosses his mind.

“I thought as my name was being called, some school official would come over to me and say, ‘We’re sorry to inform you at this late moment but you’re one credit short, so we’re not going to be able to let you walk across the stage,’ or that I failed my final exam in one of my classes,” he said.
