(NEW YORK) -- Dakota Fanning is headed for the Big Apple. She'll be a freshman at New York University this fall, according to the New York Daily News.
The newspaper cites a student-run website that investigated the school's email system and discovered that the 17-year-old actress has been assigned an NYU email address.
Fanning graduated from North Hollywood's Campbell Hall Episcopal High School in June.
