Ben Affleck Is Getting A Degree From Brown University!

ben affleck honorary degree brown university

Does this mean someone might be sharing a dorm room with Ben Affleck?!

We'd be soooo jelly, but unfortunately, not quuuite!

Ben won’t be headed to college at Brown University, but he will be getting a degree…

…an honorary degree!

The actor and director has been selected to receive an honorary Doctor of Fine Arts (DFA) from the prestigious school.

We can't wait to see him donning the classic robe and cap as he accepts the degree next month for his achievements in cinema.

We have a feeling he’ll actually make that dorky cap look DAYUM good!

He might not have gotten an Oscar for directing, but he’s getting his degree!

We think that’s just as good!

    I hate it when honorary degrees are called "degrees". They should use another word for it because to say someone gets a degree implies that they actually did the hard work, studied, passed exams, etc. It's such an insult to everyone who busted their ass to actually earn one to just "hand" one to a celebrity and call it a degree as well. Call it a University Acknowledgement or something other than a degree.

    Great. Other people have to pay an ass load of money and study their asses off to get a degree (or just to be accepted at an ivy league university), but celebrities receive honary degrees without even doing any work or ever stepping into that university.
