Megan Thee Stallion is inspiring young people to re-enroll in college after she finally completed a Bachelor of Science Degree in Health Administration.
Dr. Monica Rasmus, program director for Texas Southern University's Health Administration program, tells TMZ that one-time dropouts are re-enrolling in her program in droves.
Dr. Rasmus credits the 26-year-old rapper, born Megan Pete, with inspiring the dropouts to re-enroll in her program.
She tells TMZ former TSU students started reaching out to her to discuss returning after Megan went public in 2020 about completing her studies in order to open assisted living facilities.
Dr. Rasmus says TSU undergrads and graduate students began contacting her department out of curiosity, and a genuine desire to pursue a degree in Health Administration.
Megan also helped the program by donating the $25,000 she earned via Fashion Nova, which Dr. Rasmus says went a long way to helping students who can't afford to pay for tuition and books.
Megan graduated summa cum laude last weekend after 8 years as a student at TSU. Her scholastic dream was delayed one year by the pandemic. And she put her books down for several years to tour on the road.
However, walking across the stage to receive her diploma was Megan's biggest accomplishment.
"I know my parents are looking down on me so proud... Thank you everyone for all the love today," she wrote in the caption of her graduation photo.
