Bill Gates To Get Harvard Degree - Finally!

Bill Gates will finally get his Harvard degree only 32 years after he walked away from campus on the path to becoming the world's wealthiest person. According to the AP, Gates, the billionaire co-founder of Microsoft, philanthropist and Harvard dropout, will receive an honorary degree in June when he delivers the university's 356th commencement address. Here's more:

"I am very pleased that the Harvard community will have the opportunity to hear from Bill Gates on June 7," Harvard Alumni Association President Paul Finnegan said in a statement. "His contributions to the world of business and technology, and the great example he has set through his far-reaching philanthropy, will rightfully put him on center stage in Harvard Yard."

Gates is certainly near the top of the list of Geeks We Love so we're pretty pumped he's taking the route of finishing his degree off once and for all...hopefully it won't put any damper on the best underdog store ever. That is if any Harvard drop-out can be considered an underdog.
