Fresh off a whirlwind year that included a national championship win, historic sponsorship deals, a Met Gala appearance, and a standout WNBA Chicago Sky debut, Angel Reese has added another accomplishment to her growing list: college graduate. 

Angel was one of the nearly 5,000 students who crossed the Louisiana State University stage on Friday, May 17, and Saturday, May 18. She earned a degree in interdisciplinary studies with concentrations and minors in Communication Studies, Leadership Development, and Psychology.

Representing the Class of 2024, she is part of the university’s largest-ever Spring graduating class. Congratulations to the Bayou Barbie!

Angel took to Instagram today to celebrate her academic achievement. She uploaded a six-picture carousel post featuring her in a black suit, bombshell wavy hair, gold jewelry that read “AR,” and a custom graduation cap. Maddie Alexandria styled Angel’s graduation glam, and Trebreh Baaheth captured her shots.

“So now what? What was said? Oh, okay, that’s what I thought,” the baller beauty wrote on Instagram under her photos. “I graduated from THE LOUISIANA STATE UNIVERSITY IN 4 YEARS ON TIME💋 I thought somebody without a college degree said sum.😘,” she continued.

While not over yet, Angel’s journey hasn’t been without its challenges and, honestly, unwarranted criticism. A brief benching earlier in the season led to questions about her academic standing.  However, the determined athlete silenced the doubters, balancing her studies with her role as a star player, leading LSU to the Elite Eight in the NCAA tournament.

Further, Angel received negative social media comments recently for attending the Met Gala. The WNBA rookie shut down chatter with a stellar game.

On May 8, she tweeted to her naysayers, “So now yall can delete them drafts & tweets saying I shouldn’t have gone to the met gala & I can’t do both. I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHO STRENGTHENS ME😇.”

Then, the next day, Angel announced a new Good AmericanSky High” fashion campaign for tall women. Sis is unstoppable – and an undeniable force to be reckoned with.

Angel Reese continues to be goals on and off the court.  Refusing to be put in a box, she is an inspiration for younger generations. As a collegiate all-star, fashion influencer, professional WNBA player, and now a college graduate, we can’t wait to see what’s next for the stunning star.
