Jack White will be receiving an honorary doctorate from Wayne State University. White attended the Detroit-based university for just one semester in 1994 before dropping out.

The Detroit Free Press said White will be in attendance at the Friday, May 3 commencement ceremony for Wayne State’s College of Fine, Performing and Communication Art and College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. No word yet if he will be speaking at the ceremony.
