Emma Watson returning to Brown University

By Tribute on October 24, 2012 | 3 Comments

Emma Watson is going back to Brown University to continue her four year program in January 2013. Watson attended the Ivy League college from 2009 to 2011, but decided to discontinue to do her film work. She later transferred to Oxford University in England, but again had to put off her education to complete the film The Perks of Being a Wallflower. “As you know, I love Brown and I love studying pretty much more than anything, but recently I’ve had so much to juggle that being a student AND fulfilling my other commitments has become a little impossible,” she wrote on her website. She also added that her prime goal is to finish her studies. Watson, 22, dismissed rumors in April 2011 that she’d left college due to being bullied. She also managed to squeeze in the films The Bling Ring, also starring Kirsten Dunst and Leslie Mann, and Noah, with Russell Crowe and Jennifer Connelly, during her absence from school.  ~Luxy Hariharan

    That’s one less seat for a student who worked hard to get into the program, while she gets in due to her high status.

    She’s smart, pretty and talent.

    Whatever role she plays in the future, she’ll always be remembered as Hermoine from Harry Potter. It is hard to actors to shake off a popular stereotype about themselves.
