Normal, Non- Airborne Muggle Transportation the Way to University for Emma Watson

Actress Emma Watson has updated her website to confirm that she has arrived safely at Brown University where she will be attending school this year here in the US. She writes that she "arrived on Tuesday, and is having "the most amazing time." Emma continues "I'm still so excited to be here; I've already met so many incredible people. I'm over my jet lag and now I just want classes to start! Hope you are all well and happy and if you've just started college or university that it is everything you hoped it would be." 

Tabloids and paparazzi have been relentlessness in their pursuit of Emma arriving at school, with scores of reports flying all over the internet (which will not reappear on TLC). One such ludicrous rumor had Emma arriving at school in airborne manner, which the Hermione Granger actress dispelled by stating "Oh and contrary to the reports you may have read, I didn't arrive by helicopter. I've only been in one once when I was little and I was terrified. Now back to my studies! Speak soon."

I’m glad to have official confirmation that Emma is, indeed, studying at Brown. I think it was a great choice for her. I went there, and my favorite part was the flexibility they allowed in their curriculum. There are no core, or “gen ed” requirements that everyone has to take, so you can really explore a number of topics that interest you, and tailor your concentration (major) to whatever you want it to be (at least, that’s how it was when I was there, which was, admittedly, several years ago now). Anyway, I hope Emma will have a wonderful and fulfilling experience there…and who knows – perhaps I will run into her at a future class reunion! :)

Good luck to miss Emma. I don’t think that anyone’s interested in photos of her in the uni anyway.
