John, who graduated in 1999 from UPENN with a degree in English and a concentration in African-American literature and culture, had one message for the grads....LOVE. John credits his success to finding love and told the grads, "The key to success, the key to happiness is to open your heart to love. Spening your time doing things you love and with people you love."
Meanwhile, John's wife Chrissy Teigen tweeted, "my baby got another honorary doctorate! I have a bunch too I just don't brag about all the time."
