( CM ) - UGLY BETTY star VANESSA WILLIAMS is set for a Mother's Day weekend (10-11May08) she won't forget by picking up her bachelor of fine arts degree 25 years after she attended Syracuse University.
The actress/singer, 45, was a drama student at Syracuse but dropped out when she became the first black Miss America in 1983.
