Jimmy Fallon officially got his communications degree from Saint Rose college in Albany, New York. He’s now a college graduate. Yeah, its a slow celeb news day….anyways, no word on what the kegger later was like, but if he didn’t pull out Will Ferrel as the celebrity keg pump dude for it, he fails no matter how much they say he passes. More from People.
“There’s always going to be someone out there like that movie critic, who doesn’t believe in you or who thinks your head is too big or you’re not smart enough,” Fallon told the graduates. “But those are the people you need to ignore, and those are the times you need to just keep doing what you love doing.”
The Saturday Night Live alum attended St. Rose from 1992 through 1995 but decided to drop out just one semester short of graduating to pursue a comedy career in Los Angeles.
In order to graduate, Fallon presented college officials a portfolio of his work on TV and film that illustrated he had learned and fulfilled the college’s core curriculum through his real-life experience, which satisfied remaining credits.
