The Twilight starlet was spotted taking a tour of NYU on Apr. 29 — and we think that’s great!

It’s a rarity these days for a successful young actress to take time off from her career and focus on college, but it sounds like that’s exactly what Dakota Fanning, 16, is looking to do! She was spotted getting a tour of Gallatin, New York University’s school of independent study, on Apr. 29. We really commend Dakota for even considering college. It’s so easy for celebs to overlook the importance of education (after all, they’ve already got their dream job) and we’re glad Dakota isn’t one of them.

Of course, Dakota certainly wouldn’t be the first celeb to put her studies first. Harry Potter superstar Emma Watson, 20, is currently studying at Brown University, while Anne Hathaway has studied at both Vassar College and NYU — coincidentally at Gallatin, the same school Dakota was touring! Maybe she should give Anne a call and get some advice!

Choosing colleges is one of the hardest decisions a kid has to make in their life — but whatever Dakota decides, we’re behind her 100 percent!
