As any college student can attest, the final few weeks of the semester are always stressful: there’s projects to complete, papers to write and tests to study for.

And this spring, Green Bay Packers safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix is being reminded anew of what that stress feels like.

The 2014 first-round pick, who was a Pro Bowler for the first time in 2016, is back on campus at Alabama, taking classes as he continues to pursue his degree in criminal justice. And he’s letting us all in on things in real time, posting about his classes and assignments on Twitter.

A sampling of what he’s shared:

And he’s even taking advantage of extra-credit opportunities:


Clinton-Dix outlined to Packers reporter Jason Wilde of ESPN last year why he’s determined to get his degree, and hopes to put it to use as a mentor to kind in the Orlando, Florida area where he grew up, and show them that most law-enforcement officers are there to help.

As he takes his classes, Clinton-Dix is doing another thing a lot of students would do: he’s binge-watching “The Walking Dead,” the acclaimed AMC series. Based on a Wednesday tweet, it looks like he’s trying to finish up season 7.

When he left Alabama, Clinton-Dix was 26 credits shy of his degree; he’s taken a mix of in-person and online classes, and his goal is to graduate in the fall.
