Where did Kerry Washington go to college? Kerry Washington attended George Washington University in Washington, D.C., where she earned a degree in performance studies in 1998. According to her official IMDB biography, the “Scandal” had been accepted to both Yale and Dartmouth, but she ultimately opted for GW, and in May 2013, she returned to her alma matter to deliver the commencement address. The brainy and beautiful actress was born in the Bronx, New York, on January 31, 1977, and she displayed her talent and intelligence from an early age. As a youngster, she attended the prestigious Spence School in Manhattan, and she performed with the TADA! Youth Theater group. After earning her college degree, she made the jump to feature films, and since making her big-screen debut in 2000, she’s appeared in “Save the Last Dance,” “Ray,” and “The Last King of Scotland,” among other box office hits. In 2012, she began her run on “Scandal,” on which she plays Olivia Pope, a crisis-management expert in Washington, D.C.

Given that Kerry Washington went to college at George Washington University, it’s somewhat ironic that she wound up on “Scandal.” The show, after all, is set in the nation’s capital, and since hitting airwaves in 2012, it’s earned rave reviews from fans and critics alike. It’s also made Washington a major celebrity, and in June 2013, she made headlines by announcing her marriage to NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha. In October 2013, Washington again garnered major press attention by revealing that she was pregnant with the couple’s first child. She’s also made a name for herself as a political activist, and she’s on the board of the women’s rights organization V-Day.

Where, specifically, did Kerry Washington go to college? George Washington University is located in the Foggy Bottom section of Washington, D.C., and it’s in close proximity to the White House — a place “Scandal” fans know well — among other notable landmarks.
