Jimmy Fallon is going to graduate

jimmy fallon tallWhen we heard that Jimmy Fallon was going to be the commencement speaker at this year's St. Rose graduation, we thought it was a little funny (in both the ha ha and strange way) because... Fallon dropped out of St. Rose.

But CSR is on top of this -- it's awarding Fallon his degree on the same day. From the press release:

Fallon attended Saint Rose from 1992 through 1995, starting as a computer science major before switching to communications. He left just one semester shy of graduation to pursue a career in comedy in Los Angeles. Fallon earned his bachelor's degree after presenting College officials with a portfolio of his work in TV and film, satisfying the College's requirements for the outstanding credits.

Also speaking at this year's CSR graduation: pollster John Zogby. In a poll of graduating St. Rose seniors, 32 percent were happy about that, 18 percent thought Nate Silver was hotter and 50 percent said they were undecided.*

*Yes, we totally made up that up.

That's pretty cool! I home someone puts it up on YouTube or something - although I don't think Fallon will be able to best Conan when it comes to commencement speeches *cough* or late-night television talk shows *cough*

Not bad - have to go to that graduation anyway (fiancee graduating and all), hopefully he gives an interesting speech.


His parents must be so proud...It only took him 17 years to graduate!

The hed for this post should totally be Jimmy Fallon Graduates!
