Howard University

Howard University’s 2014 graduation this past Saturday (May 10) was monumental in more ways than one. With countless celebrities—French Montana, Mary J Blige, Bow Wow, and Will.i.am—spotted on the campus grounds as Diddy delivered his commencement speech, the university also graduated 105 Ph.D recipients.

Beating their previous records (101 in 2008), they also rated as the highest number of African Americans that get their doctorate in the STEM fields. Their new record adds to their already notarized titles as the top HBCU in which their undergraduates are most likely to go on and get their Ph.D than any other university.
