Hollywood Superstar Glen Powell is Still Pursuing His College Degree

Glen Powell is shaping up to be one of the biggest Hollywood stars of his generation, with many notable credits under his belt. His career has really taken off thanks to the recent roles in Top Gun: Maverick and Anyone But You, but did you know he’s still pursuing his college degree?

Powell graduated from Westwood High School in Austin, Texas in 2007, before deciding to pursue a career in Hollywood. Acting was just a fun hobby back in the day, and he was actually a skilled athlete, playing football and lacrosse during his teenage years.

Powell decided to continue his academic journey at the Moody College of Communication at the University of Texas at Austin, but his plans changed once his acting career took off. He left college before finishing his degree, but he recently told The Hollywood Reporter that he’s planning to move back to Texas to be closer to his family and complete the requirements for his degree.

Despite not graduating from Moody College just yet, he was invited to deliver the commencement speech last year. The Moody College Dean Jay Bernhardt said he was chosen as keynote speaker because “his hard work, persistence, and devotion to craft will inspire [their] graduates as they start their next chapters.”
