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:

“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.”

And this isn’t even her first degree! She also received an associate degree back in 2007 for fashion design.

We’re so proud of Venus, and we’re thrilled that she can slay both on and off the court!
