Congratulations to Venus Williams!
The tennis player received her bachelors degree from Indiana University, and we aren't just talking about an honorary diploma that gets given out to most celebrities.

Instead, she did it all on her own!
The sports star enrolled in the college's online program in 2011, and last month she stopped by the school's campus to pick up her degree in Business Administration!
Venus was completely over the moon about fulfilling this goal, saying:

We LOVE this!
End of May usually means lots of college commencement speeches, and while some are better than others… we don't think we've seen or heard a more inspiring speech than this one right here!
Indiana University grad Parker Mantell addressed his fellow students on May 10th, and right off the bat he addressed the fact that he has a slight stutter when he speaks.
But Parker refuses to go off the subject of his speech impediment, and immediately brings tears to our eyes when he says:

Are male readers actually reading any of this? Or are you just staring at the photo??? LOLz.
According to a new study, even though sexy female news anchors may boost ratings, males are less likely to retain much actual news from them, because they get distracted.
Indiana University scholars have found that “men’s cognitive mechanisms favored visual over verbal processing.”
Ha! That's ONE way of saying "men get distracted by sexy women."
Studies were done with female anchors dressed in a desexualized manner, as well as a sexualized manner, and researchers found that men remembered “significantly more information watching the unsexualized anchor deliver news than her sexualized version.”
Guess guys should start keeping their eyes shut when Megyn Kelly is reporting the news…
