WEST LAFAYETTE, INDIANA: In an interview with Allure magazine, the 'Stranger Things' star Millie Bobby Brown revealed the news, that she is majoring in human services because "you learn about the system and how to help young people" there.

The home of Purdue University is in West Lafayette, Indiana. The fictional town of Hawkins, which is where 'Stranger Things' is set, is also located in Indiana. Brown portrays Eleven, a young woman with telekinetic powers.

After being chosen to play Eleven in the Netflix series 'Stranger Things', Brown gained recognition in 2016. Since the beginning of her acting career, the young actress has struggled with fame. The 18-year-old actress is about to start her first year as a college online student. The program's goals are further outlined on the school's website, which also states that it is designed to give students a foundational understanding of human development and family studies, as well as the ability to interact with people in service organizations and to evaluate programs.

Over the course of the show's seasons, Purdue has been mentioned, including on a limited-edition Purdue shirt that appeared in Season 3. Brown also discussed the opportunities that her success as an actor has given her in another section of the Allure interview. Her wildly well-liked skincare brand, Florence by Mills, was established as a guide for other Gen-Zers interested in learning more about skincare.

“I don’t know anything about beauty and skincare,” she revealed. “That’s why I created this. I’m going to take you on this journey with me, so we can learn more about botanicals, serums, fruit and vegetable extracts, enzymes. Things that are so important for your skin, but we don’t know about because we’re young. Everything’s anti-aging, everything is de-puffing. We don’t know what that means...I need to know more. And I know our generation needs to know more.”

The actor also spoke about her ongoing work for UNICEF as a Goodwill Ambassador, a position that has given her the chance to better relate to and support young women. People may view it as stressful or frightening, but in her opinion, that is the most exciting aspect of her job. "Everyone is looking at me and asking, 'Millie, what are you going to say?' Young girls deserve an education, I'm going to say. All young people should have equal rights. You have a right to love the people you desire. Be the people you want to be and realize your goals by being who you want to be. My message is that."

The Stranger Things actor isn't the only cast member who decided to experiment with the whole "being a college student while also casually being a major celeb" thing, which is interesting. Noah Schnapp, who plays Will Byers, revealed in December that he had been accepted to the University of Pennsylvania by posting a super adorable video of the moment he received his offer letter.
