NFL Hall of Famer Jerome Bettis Announces Completion of Business Degree

Former Steelers star Jerome Bettis officially graduated from Notre Dame with his business degree 28 years after he left campus for the NFL.

“The Bus” tweeted on Thursday that his degree is complete as he is a member of the Class of 2022. He left Notre Dame in 1993 as a junior when he was drafted by the Rams with the No. 10 pick. He was only four courses shy from his business degree, so the 49-year-old returned to campus this semester to finish it.

“A promise made, a promise kept,” Bettis wrote. “28 years after leaving Notre Dame, I’ve completed my degree from the Mendoza School of Business. I hope my journey serves as [a] reminder that education is the true equalizer in life and it is never too late to start.”
