Stunning actress Andie MacDowell is to be awarded the MEDAL OF HONOR in the Arts from her former university tutor.

The Groundhog Day beauty will be honoured at a fund-raiser on 22 October (04) by Winthrop University which she attended in the 1970s before she became an actress.

Winthrop Dean ANDREW SVEDLOW says, "The Winthrop University Medal of Honor in the Arts annually recognizes the unique contributions to the cultural life of the university, the community, and to the nation of a select group of artists and supporters of the arts."

MacDowell has recently finished filming Beauty Shop with Queen Latifah.
