Q:

What college did Kanye West attend?

A:

Kanye West withdrew from his courses at Chicago State University in 1996 and, as of September 2014, has not enrolled at another college. He was an English major at the same university where Donda West, his now-deceased mother, worked as a professor.

Telling his mother that a college education was unnecessary since he grew up with a professor in the home, Kanye dropped out of college to become a rapper. His physical education teacher from high school recalls that Kanye always dreamed of becoming an entertainer, stating that he told her he was going to grow up to be "the best rapper in the whole world." To date, the well-known rapper has received 21 Grammy awards.
