It was in the year 2006 when Mark Zuckerberg chose to leave Harvard midway to start his own company Facebook - which is worth 400 billion dollars and is one of the biggest companies in the world.
Harvard President Drew Faust said in a statement.
With a net worth of almost $150 billion between them, one would think Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates could afford a few acting lessons.
Who says you have to go to college to get a degree?
Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg, one of Harvard's most famous dropouts, will be returning to Cambridge to deliver this year's commencement speech, 12 years after he dropped out of the university.
"They know we didn't actually graduate, right?", he asks Gates.
The video shows Zuckerberg and Gates talking to each other seriously. "Good luck on your speech", comments Mr Gates on the Facebook video. He is set to give the commencement address to the Harvard class of 2017 where the school will be awarding him with a honorary degree. "Hope the honorary degree helps you land your dream job".
Since then, the company has had wild success (you may even be reading this article because it was shared on Facebook).
Harvard President Drew Faust lauded the former student's leadership and his company's impact on how almost 1.9 billion people interact, saying she looks forward to welcoming Zuckerberg back to the varsity on Commencement day. Last year, Forbes named Zuckerberg one of the top 10 "World's Most Powerful People".
Zuckerberg will speak to Harvard graduates on May 25.
