Joey Lawrence goes to college

Joey Lawrence goes to college — The ”Blossom” star talks about attending USC

”We have a Nobel Prize winner; a new state-of-the-art library, and $ million (from) Walter Annenberg — and we’re best known for the guy who says, ‘Whoa!”’ responds University of Southern California Steve Yawitz to the news that Blossom hunk Joey Lawrence is a member of the Class of ’98.
