Stephen Curry Earns Degree From Davidson 13 Years After He Left The School

Accolades for him are not limited to the basketball court.

Stephen Curry is providing inspiration for anyone looking to attain a college degree.

The Golden State Warriors superstar, who left Davidson University 13 years ago to enter the NBA Draft, returned to the school to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in sociology.

According to a tweet from the Warriors, the All-Star completed his final semester of coursework this spring and is a member of the Class of 2022.

ESPN reports that Curry, who helped lead his team to a 110-96 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies in Game 6 of their second-round series on Friday (May 13) to advance to the Western Conference finals, had been one semester short of graduating and re-enrolled at the North Carolina school for the spring semester. He did not attend Sunday’s commencement, according to Davidson, but his name was listed as one of the graduates.

Curry attended Davidson from 2006 to 2009 and leads the university all-time in points, 3-point field goals, free throws, field goals and steals.

With Curry’s graduation, he will likely have his number retired by Davidson, who only retires numbers of players who have earned a degree.
