Stranger Things cast members were still kids when we first met them, but they’re now old enough to go to college. Some of them are focusing on their career in Hollywood, while others decided to hit the books and continue their academic pursuits by enrolling in college.
Millie Bobby Brown
Brown is Stranger Things’s biggest teenage star, but that’s not stopping her from pursuing other interests outside of acting. She became an online college student at Purdue University earlier this year, where she studies health and human services. She told Allure she opted for this program because it allows her to “learn about the system and how to help young people.”
Caleb McLaughlin was home-schooled for most of his teenage years and graduated from high school in 2019. He told People that he’s going to go to college that fall and take some online courses because he wants to “stay education”, but didn’t detail his plans any further.
Unlike his co-stars Brown and McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp decided to swap online classes for the real classroom experience. Earlier this year, he’s been accepted into the Class of 2026 at the University of Pennsylvania, one of eight Ivy League universities in the US.
