Education is very vital in our society and Tennis star Venus Williams understood the means of getting your education. Venus is now a graduate from Indiana University and has shown a lot of fans and her peers that you can achieve success if you put dedication, commitment, and faith in what you are doing. “I’ve learned so much,” Williams stated in a press release. “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.”
Venus has graduated with an honorary degree in a Bachelors of Science in Business Administration; with this degree and the experience that she has gotten could help her with her own clothing line, interior design firm and even co-ownership of the Miami Dolphins football team.
“IU East and the Women’s Tennis Benefits Association have an agreement that establishes our campus as the primary provider for baccalaureate online degree completion programs for WTA players,” Cruz-Uribe said. “Venus was instrumental in connecting IU East and the WTA in this highly-valued partnership, and we are very grateful for this.”
“It was just a wonderful experience,” Williams said. “I love being a Red Wolf. I love this school, and I’m so happy to be a part of it.”
