Back To School

| Filed under: Jimmy Fallon

mx019038524.jpg

Who said it's never too late to finish school? Apparently Jimmy Fallon feels that way.

Well, sort of.

Fallon isn't really going back to school, he's just getting a diploma!

About 15 years ago, the comic was studying to get his bachelor's degree in communications, however, the funnyman decided to leave to Los Angeles in order to pursue his comedy career. He ended up leaving one semester before graduation!

That was stoopid!

But, this Saturday, Fallon picked up his diploma and give a speech at the College of St. Rose commencement at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center.

He attended the college from 1992 through 1995, originally starting off as a computer science major before switching.

The school is not admitting to giving away any free diplomas. Instead, they claim Fallon earned his degree by completing the requirements for the remaining credits by presenting them with a portfolio of his work.

Yea, yea.

A diploma for Jimmy and press for the school.

    Congrat's Fallon…

    What a nice example that he's shown not only to the youths of America, but also to adults who feel that they might be humiliated by insecure punks for grabbing goals a bit later in life. Sometimes, people don't have the option to go to college at 18. Instead, these people have to EARN A LIVING…

    we pay teachers shit, but give overnight diplomas to any first, second, third rate celebrities

    What a waste of a story. Who really cares that Jimmy Fallon got his diploma? If the youth of this world looks to him as a role model to go back and get an education, wow!

    WHO CARES?



  7. 7

    Maybe somebody should teach how to be funny again!



  8. 8

    He should get a job in the school book store, or at least something that he might be good at. (ie. Lorne Michael's ball washer?)

    Okay, well maybe not the youth of America, but at least his fanbase. No? And for the previous commentor, yes you are right. They will indeed offer honorary degrees, etc., just like some people are born into wealth.

    He was a student when I was a grad student at Saint Rose — I remember he used to do amazing impressions for people's PhoneMail systems. His Howard Stern was perfect. (Jimmy, if you are reading this — speaking of PhoneMail, do you remember Ed Dague: "What the F*** happened to the note?")



  13. 13

    I'm at the P's right now. The only thing missing is you!



  14. 14

    whooo

    St Rose is my grad school…loves it



  15. 15

    I don't think that's "stoopid." :(



  16. 16

    Go Jimmy! :D



  17. 17

    I thought college gives you a DEGREE…high school gives a diploma…



  18. 18

    did you go to college, Mario? Good for him for finishing.



  19. 19

    THAT'S THE COLLEGE THAT I'M GOING TO IN THREE MONTHS!

    what a joke. if you become a celebrity you dont even have to do schoolwork to get a degree. what an insult to hard working students who actually do homework and learn something to get a degree. ive never even heard of this fifth rate junior college



  21. 21

    Re: h8terboi – First of all, The College of Saint Rose is NOT a fifth rate junior college, you uneducated, close-minded moron. I went to Saint Rose for both my undergrad and now for my grad work in education b/c it is one of the top education schools in the country, and one of only 600 schools in which students who receive their certification are nationally certified. So before you make your ridiculous judgments on what kind of school this is (whether you agree/disagree that Fallon should have received the degree) maybe you should do some actual research before you open your mouth and look like a fool. Hope you have a wonderful day :)



  22. 22

    AMEN to that…I just finished my undergrad there and now am doing my grad for education..one of the best schools you can go to for it.



  23. 23

    LOLZ a Bachelor degree is nothing now!!!!! That asshole is not worthy of the lowest of degrees he's a moron with luck and no wit!



  24. 24

    it's a bachelor's degree NOT a diploma..plus he got an honorary doctorate…and it was communications not theatre—communication majors are often not taught how to act, and aren't required to take acting classes. which would explain a lot! :)



  25. 25

    Re: luvperetzel – "one of only 600"? wow that sounds real first rate. any school that hands out toilet paper degrees to professional fools isnt a legitimate college as far as im concerned. again ive never even pucken heard of this college and i spent a lot of years in higher education
