Most people view a college education as a stepping stone towards beginning a career, but for working celebs who maybe didn’t have the opportunity to complete a degree, it’s often seen as a milestone to circle back to. Here is a pretty impressive list of celebrities that pursued post-secondary education or ent back to finish college even though they were already rich and famous.
1. Steven Spielberg
Steven Spielberg was originally a student at California State University Long Beach, but he dropped out with just one credit left to complete. In 2001 he went and back and finished his degree in film in electronic arts. It was a mere 34 years and many films later, but the time seemed right. He may have three Oscars, half a dozen Emmys and five honorary doctorates, but he’s really proud of his degree.
