It’s Never Too Late: Ray J Is Going To College
After pursuing a music and acting career, breaking into reality TV and starting his own business, Ray J decided there was only one thing left to do: go to college.
The Love & Hip-Hop Hollywood star revealed via his Instagram that he has decided to enroll at Philander Smith College to help hone his skills as a businessman. He said that after spending three days on campus, he connected with the students and the college President Roderick Smothers and decided that that was the school for him.
The new father is following in his parents’ footsteps and attending a HBCU and he couldn’t be happier to embark on this new journey.
“After speaking to the students about perseverance, hard work and being self-motivated, I was very inspired,” he wrote under a picture of him surrounded by students cheering him on. “I welcome the opportunity to further my business skills as I continues to grow and expand my technology company @RayconGlobal. It’s never too late to go to college.”
Ray J, 37, is starting classes in January 2019.

God is working!! I chose to enroll in Philander Smith College. After speaking to the students about perseverance, hard work and being self-motivated, I was very inspired. I spent 3 consecutive days on campus engaging with the students and President Roderick Smothers. I’m very familiar with the HBCU experience because my parents attended HBCUs. I welcome the opportunity to further my business skills as I continue to grow and expand my technology company @RayconGlobal. It's never too late to go to college. I'm so excited to be a part of the PSC family and strive to achieve my goals. First semester starts in January, 2019 .#PSC #Education #Motivation
