Kansas City Chiefs star tight end Travis Kelce achieved his lifelong goal of earning his college diploma from the University of Cincinnati on Thursday, and he made sure to celebrate the achievement in style.

Donned in his cap and gown, Kelce walked up on stage with a beer in hand and celebrated his interdisciplinary studies degree.

After shaking hands with the Dean, Kelce paused, chugged his beer to a chorus of cheering from the crowd in attendance, and then received his diploma with a huge smile on his face and his arms raised in celebration.

Kelce just wrapped up his 11th NFL season, which included 93 receptions for 984 yards and five touchdowns. He was once again a key component of the offense in helping the Chiefs capture their third Super Bowl title in the last five seasons.

Kelce will likely never need to use his interdisciplinary studies degree, but the diploma will certainly look nice on the wall of his house.
