Emma Watson, Dakota Fanning to Join Rich College-Celebrity Tradition at NYU

NYU Local reports that Dakota Fanning, of The Runaways and the Twilight series, has been accepted to NYU’s Gallatin, and that Emma Watson, of the Harry Potter series, has been seen touring the school recently, taking time away from her current matriculation at Brown. (Representatives for both actresses were unavailable for comment.) Gallatin, whose students design their own academic programs, is a time-honored spot for celebrities, having been the onetime academic home of both Olsens and incoming Vassar transfer Anne Hathaway. Welcome to New York to students both new and newly weary of being out of the loop in Providence!
