For the past two years, Hawkins has been taking classes at the Ivy League school during the offseason to achieve his master's in sports management. Being cut by the Browns was not ideal, but it allowed the 5-foot-7 receiver to complete his last semester as a full-time student and graduate with a 4.0 GPA.  

He designed a perfect cap for graduation to go along with his football abilities.

Besides being a full-time student, Hawkins has been interning for the past three months with Uninterrupted.com. To see what a day in the life is like for an Uninterrupted intern, check out the video below.
