The actress rose to fame with her scary yet unforgettable role as Stranger Things' Eleven, which has gripped fans for six years now.

However, she is on her way to make an impact in an entirely different way, as now that she is officially eighteen, she is stepping away from Hollywood and making her way towards a college campus.

She revealed the exciting news in an interview with Allure Magazine, announcing that she had enrolled in Purdue University, in West Lafayette, Indiana.

Ironically, her college of choice creates quite the full circle moment, as Stranger Things also takes place in Indiana, in a fictional town named Hawkins. She detailed that she would attend classes online, so it appears she will juggle both school work and her acting.

The sci-fi series most recently launched their fourth season, after a three year hiatus, and it featured a first volume with seven episodes and a second with only two.

Its fifth installment is set to be the final one of the series, however, a live-action Stranger Things spinoff and a "stage play set within the world and mythology" of the show are being created by Upside Down Pictures, the production company founded by the show's creators, The Duffer Brothers.
