(AllHipHop News) Nick Cannon’s revelation he was attending Howard University came as a surprise to some people, but the Wild ‘n Out creator is serious about his thirst for knowledge.

Every week Cannon flies to Washington, DC in order to take classes at the prestigious HBCU.

The 36-year-old actor/rapper wrote about his decision to go back to school in an op-ed for Forbes.

“I’m forcing myself to squeeze out the time and summon the energy I need to complete my college education. Do you know why I do it? To reach higher,” wrote Cannon.

He also addressed participating in the 2017 College Signing Day, a program organized by Former First Lady Michelle Obama’s Reach Higher Initiative and the Better Make Room organization.

“That day and that event taught me that our young people have a vision for their future, and I cannot rest until I bring that vision to life. That’s why Reach Higher’s College Signing Day inspired me to work even harder to get my college degree,” added Cannon. “I can’t think of a more rewarding experience I’ve had than being in a room filled with young people who feel the same way—happy, but not satisfied.”
