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."

HOORAY for Emma!

Brown is a great school and brainy Emma should thrive there. On top of that, the campus is gorgeous and Rhode Island is a lovely place. GREAT CHOICE Emma. YOU GO GIRL!!!!!

I hope the press just leaves her alone. College is awesome, but also really stressful and emotional, and I couldn’t imagine having to go through it all again with nasty paparazzi after me all the time. I advise her to have fun and study hard and party a little bit and hopefully no awful pics of her end up on tabloids with “Hermione doing a keg stand” as the title.
