Actor Ben Affleck received an honourary degree from Brown University while at the institution’s commencement ceremony in Providence, RI. He accepted his doctorate diploma as Brown students chanting ‘speech’.
Ben told the class of 2013, “This is a spectacular honour for me. Not only for the education, but now I surpass Matt Damon.” Ben, attended Occidental College in LA and the University of Vermont, majoring in Middle Eastern affairs, before dropping out to pursue acting.
Matt did the same at his alma mater, Harvard University. His good pal, Matt also made scholastic honours this year when he was honoured with Harvard’s 2013 Harvard Arts Medal last month.
