Drunk, or Athens?
Matt Lauer was four credits short of graduation when he left OU in 1979.
Nancy Cartwright, (also the 2012 commencement speaker) dropped out in 1978.
Richard Dean Anderson dropped out in the 70s.
Paul Newman dropped out in 1950.
Now, these departures could have been the result of big drunken mistakes for all celebrities involved, especially since none of their eventual careers, such as the voice of Bart Simpson, would have been deterred by a record of drunken debauchery anyway.
Instead, none of these celebrities left OU because of poor behavior issues and/or an especially great obsession with Champagne Smoothies at Broney’s.
OU alum becoming pricelessly quirky contributors to pop culture: Athens.
Show Athens some love.
