Emma Roberts is college-bound

Actress Emma Roberts is set to join Dakota Fanning as a New York academic after enrolling at a Big Apple university.

The 20-year-old Scream 4 actress is heading to New York this week for her first semester at an undisclosed college.

Speaking to JustJared.com at an MTV VMA after-party on Sunday (28Aug11), she said, "I'm leaving for New York tomorrow to attend my very first semester of college. I'm studying English literature and couldn't be more excited!"

Roberts formally pledged her love for two colleges in the city and outlying areas - New York University and Sarah Lawrence - but it is not yet known which school she has decided to attend.

Last week (ends26Aug11), it was reported Fanning will be attending NYU.
