When it comes to HBCU’s especially, it’s always notable when a person of influence gives back to their respective alma maters. During the Thursday night show of the Bad Boy Reunion Tour at the Verizon Center – Washington, D.C., entertainment mogul Sean “Puffy” Combs, awarded Howard University a check for $1 million for any student who is currently struggling to pay for school and/or unable to pay off student debt.

Being Howard University alumnus and one of five to receive doctoral honors from Howard University, it’s understood why Sean Combs, professionally known as P. Diddy, chose Howard University over anywhere else. As a federally charted, private HBCU, tuition per year is roughly $35,000, therefore, the student on the receiving is has so much to be thankful for in this moment.
