Giving Back to the Alma Mater

Barbara Walters has decided to give many of her tapes, papers and photos from her five decades in journalism to Sarah Lawrence College, her alma mater.

Walters made the announcement in a surprise appearance at the suburban New York college's commencement Friday.

The kids at the college could be heard saying "what are tapes?" and "who's the old lady?"

CNN Anchor Fareed Zakaria gave Friday's commencement address, but was upstaged when Walters' made the surprise visit.
