(Las Vegas, NV)  —  A late night talk show host will receive an honorary degree from UNLV.

Jimmy Kimmel, who attended the Las Vegas campus, will be recognized during Sunday afternoon’s commencement ceremony at the Thomas and Mack Center.

About three-thousand students are getting diplomas this spring, up from just 29 students during UNLV’s first graduating class in 1964.

The day before the honor, Kimmel will be at a ribbon cutting for the technology center named after him at Clark High, featuring brand new computers, thanks to Kimmel’s donation of $60,000.
