Rodney Atkins: College Grad

Rodney Atkins thought that he was a few credits short of obtaining his degree from Tennessee Tech University, but now Rodney has been awarded his college degree.


The university, located in Cookeville, Tenn., is now offering a new major called Interdisciplinary Studies. After conducting some research, the university discovered that Rodney would be eligible for graduation in the new major without any additional course work. Dr. Robert Bell presented Rodney with his degree on July 30 in Cookeville—Rodney was in the city to perform a concert for his celebrity golf tournament. “I think going to college was definitely a benefit for me, but it’s very satisfying to have the degree in hand, especially after paying back all those student loans,” Rodney noted.
