He spent his next four years at college, graduating cum laude from Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, with degrees in history and theater.

After college D'Agosto landed a leading role in writer/director Jeffrey Blitz's film "Rocket Science," which premiered at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival and won the Dramatic Prize for directing.
