Emerson College in Boston is renaming its School of Communication (for one day only) to the Ron Burgundy School of Communication.

The special event will take place on December 4 to honour the fictitious television anchorman.

Actor Will Ferrell, in character, is scheduled to share his path to journalism greatness with students. His visit will include a news conference, the renaming ceremony and a screening of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.

Ferrell, as himself, will introduce the movie, according to CBS Boston.

In a press release, Burgundy said: "I can't wait to inspire students with my story of how I got to the top...the very top. I'm not going to sugarcoat it. It's a lot of work, especially if you don't have good hair."

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues hits theaters December 20.
