Venus Williams, 35, is more than just a star tennis player but a college graduate!
Just because Williams is, in fact, a celebrity did not change her decision of hitting the books earning herself a Bachelors of Science in Business Administration from Indiana University.
The tennis champ, who’s into the second round so far at the U.S. Open, enrolled in the university’s online degree completion program back in 2011, and on her way to a tournament in Cincinnati in August, stopped by the Richmond, Ind., campus to pick up her well-deserved diploma, according to E! News.
Williams stated in a press release:
“I’ve learned so much. It was always my dream to have a business degree, and I ended up going to art school so many times, but in the back of my head I felt like I needed the tools to be a better leader, to be a better planner, to be better at all of the things I wanted to do in my businesses because I’m so hands-on.”
The 35-year-old also earned an associate degree in fashion design from the Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale in 2007.
