Life doesn’t always go as planned, and these celebrities know that better than anyone. We often wonder how the rich and famous got to where they are in life, but there’s no set formula for success. Sometimes a degree can be the ticket to success, but not always. Celebrities can make big bucks without ever attending college, but here are some that still put in the time and effort to get a degree.
1. Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson
In his youth, Johnson was a promising football prospect who received offers from a ton of Division I collegiate football programs. He decided to take a full scholarship to the University of Miami, where he played defensive tackle and was on the national championship team in 1991. Unfortunately, he was eventually sidelined by a back injury, but college was still good to him; he met his future wife here, and in 1995, he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in criminology and physiology.
