School Daze: Ray J Announces He’s Enrolled In College

Paras Griffin/Getty Images Ray J is officially headed back to school. Over the weekend, the singer revealed he’s enrolled at a HBCU.

“God is working!! I chose to enroll in Philander Smith College,” Ray wrote, sharing an Instagram video of students telling him “congratulations” as he signed what seemed to be enrollment forms.

“After speaking to the students about perseverance, hard work and being self-motivated, I was very inspired,” Ray J continued. “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.”

According the Ray, higher learning will provide him “the opportunity to further [his] business skills” as he continues to “grow and expand” his tech company @RayconGlobal.

The “One Wish” singer also had a special message for those also looking to head back to school like him.

“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,” he said. “First semester starts in January, 2019.”
