Stephen Colbert will send off the graduating class at Northwestern University this spring, North by Northwestern reports.
In speaking at Northwestern, Colbert may be fulfilling a lifelong dream. As he waxed faux-nostalgic to Knox graduates:
But the best reason for me to come to speak at Knox College is that I attended Knox College. This is part of my personal history that you will rarely see reported. Partly because the press doesn't do the proper research. But mostly because it is not true! I just made it up, so this moment would be more poignant for all of us. How great would it be if I could actually come back here -- if I was coming back to my alma mater to be honored like this.
