Harvard Finally Gave Mark Zuckerberg His Degree 12 Years After Dropping Out

There's a long list of extremely successful people who either didn't go to college, or ended up dropping out before they finished their studies, including Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and of course, Mark Zuckerberg.  

The Facebook founder created what was then called "The Facebook" in his college dormitory in 2004. The service was originally limited to Harvard students, but became incredibly successful when it expanded to other Ivy League universities. Zuckerberg originally remained enrolled, but eventually dropped out in November 2005.  

And with Zuckerberg set to deliver the university's commencement address on Thursday, the administration figured they'd just give him his degree, considering that he's created the most successful social media platform in the world, and all. Before the speech, Zuckerberg posted a photo of himself receiving his degree, flanked by his parents, Edward and Karen Zuckerberg.

Zuckerberg also posted a photo of himself visiting the tiny dorm where he created Facebook with co-founders Dustin Moskovitz, Eduardo Saverin, Andrew McCollum, and Chris Hughes.  

At tomorrow's commencement, I'll share what I've learned about our generation and the world we're all building together....

As well as a video of his father recording the moment Zuckerberg got accepted to the prestigious university.  

My dad took this video when I got accepted to Harvard. Next week I'm going back for commencement to get my degree. #tbt
