Where did Keri Hilson go to college? Keri Hilson attended Oxford College at Emory University in Atlanta, where she studied theater. Hilson did not graduate from Emory, however, since she got a record deal during her senior year, as she explained in a January 2011 tweet. Hilson’s lack of a diploma hasn’t slowed her down, though, as she’s proven herself as both a songwriter and a solo artist. In addition to releasing two albums, she’s co-written hits — as part of the Clutch collective — for the likes of Britney Spears and Mary J. Blige.

Fans may have begun asking, “Where did Keri Hilson go to college?” around 2007, when she appeared on Timbaland’s “The Way I Are” single. She’d signed to his Mosley Music label the year before, and in 2009, she dropped her solo debut, “In a Perfect World.” She returned in 2010 with “No Boys Allowed,” which yielded the hit “Pretty Girl Rock.” She’s currently prepping album No. 3, and she’s possibly considering more acting work, having appeared in the films “Think Like a Man” and “Riddick.”

Where did Keri Hilson go to college? Here’s the technical answer: Oxford College of Emory University is a two-year residential college focusing on liberal arts, and it’s located in Oxford, Georgia, about 38 miles from Emory’s main campus. Although Hilson did not graduate from Emory, she’s said in interviews that education is very important in her family, and since she feels like the “black sheep,” she’d like to one day grab a diploma.

“My degree was a theater degree, performance based, so I’m gonna go for the honorary if I can,” she said in an interview with the Boombox. “I’ve been talking to the dean of the art school and Emory University, if you’re reading this, I would love to get the honorary degree. I gotta get that piece of paper.”
