Did the Stars of “The Summer I Turned Pretty” Go to College?

The Summer I Turned Pretty is one of the most popular teen dramas in recent years, and its characters are mostly on the verge between their high school and college years. We’ve seen its character continue their education at Brown University and fictional Finch College, but did the actors playing them also go to college?

Lola Tung

After graduating from Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts, Lola Tung decided to continue her education at the Carnegie Mellon University School of Drama. She finished her first year before filming the first season of The Summer I Turned Pretty and decided to take a year off to focus on her work on the show.

Christopher Briney

Briney’s character Conrad Fisher is attending Brown University, but he’s thinking about transferring to Stanford because he shared a dream of attending it with his late mother. Briney’s own academic journey was more straightforward and he graduated with a BFA in acting from Pace University in New York in 2020.

Gavin Casalegno

Jeremiah Fisher is attending the fictional Finch College on The Summer I Turned Pretty, but did Gavin Casalegno pursue higher education? He was only four when he booked his first modeling gig and turned to acting in later years, but managed to finish Lovejoy High School in Lucas, Texas while building a career in Hollywood.
