Congrats, Matt Damon!

Although the 42-year-old dropped out of Harvard University (he attended from 1988 to 1992), he was honored Thursday for his work in the arts with the 2013 Harvard Arts Medal, according to local news.

The ceremony was led by fellow Harvard alma mater John Lithgow, who began the discussion with talks of Damon's school days and, of course, the major success of Good Will Hunting.

Damon's writing partner for the film has also been honored this week in his own right.

E! News confirms that Ben Affleck is slated to receive an honorary doctorate degree from Brown University during their 245th Commencement on May 26.

The boys of Boston are making big strides in the collegiate circle!
