The founder of Snapchat and his wife have paid off the entire student debt of 284 graduates at the Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles. Snapchat co-founder Evan Spiegel, who once took summer classes at the college, and his wife, Australian model Miranda Kerr, received honorary doctorates at the commencement ceremony.
