Garth Brooks was part of the graduating class at Oklahoma State University last Friday (May 6th). The singer earned his Master's degree, much to the delight of surprised fellow graduates at the ceremony in Stillwater. Garth donned a cap and gown to collect his degree, even agreeing to pose for pictures with excited fellow OSU grads.
Tasteofcountry.com reports that Garth did not receive an honorary degree, but rather he completed all the mandatory coursework himself.
Garth earned an advertising degree from OSU in 1985.
He put his higher education on hold to chase his dream of making music and it's that music that he most hopes people will remember about him.
