*Out of the blue…or shall we say, blue and white…Nick Cannon announced Sunday that he is a freshman at Howard University in Washington D.C.

“YOU KNOW!!!!! #HU2020 My First Day as a Freshman!!! Howard University Class of 2020,” the “America’s Got Talent” host said in an Instagram pic showing him in front of an HU sign with a Louie Vuitton backpack.

No word yet on whether he’ll be a full time student, if he’s chosen a major…or if he’ll try out for the band as a drummer.

The Internet immediately brought up his 2002 film “Drumline,” where he played a freshman student at the fictional historically black college, Atlanta A&T University and joined the drum corps.
