Hayden Panettiere doesn’t want to attend college

Hayden Panettiere doesn't want to attend collegeHayden Panettiere wanted to go to college when she was younger, but has since changed her mind. 

Since appearing on “Heroes”, the starlet says that she has had the learning experience of growing up in Hollywood. 

Now, she’s happy just pretending to be a student in school.

She says, “I always wanted to go to college, but the show happened to start in a pretty pivotal period, when you have thoughts of going to college.  It was just such a success and it is what I love to do.  I would love to take some classes that I really enjoy, but I think college is a learning experience for yourself as a person and it’s about being on your own for the first time.”

While she does have a point, I will have to say that she may change her mind in the future.  College isn’t for everyone and it is a personal decision, but it’s not only for people who are going out on their own for the first time, I’ve known plenty of people in their twenties, thirties, and fourties who have gone back to college.

That’s one thing that I can say, I’m always learning, with or without college.


  1. So true! When we stop learning is when we go to the great university in the sky – and even then, who knows?

  2. As my mom said to me, “money comes and money goes, but the only thing no one can ever take away from you is your education.” The fact of the matter is that she’s on a hit show now, but who knows what will be in 10 years. Hell, even in 5! Maybe she’ll still be famous, but if not, she would always have her college degree to fall back on. Hubris. She should get it. Even if she doesn’t do the whole campus thing, she should get her degree.

  3. good one hannah and jen. Hayden is such a pretty girl too. I wanted to go to college recently within the past few years, but it was so expensive and I couldn’t get financial aid. So I gave it up and now I’m running the restaurant. I still think I should take some courses once in awhile.

  4. Go for it MBP!! I think college was more interesting to me after I had a little life experience. I only went for two semester after high school and was still in the “school sucks” frame of mind. When I went back at age 24 I totally rocked a 4.0 GPA, which was a total turnaround for me!

  6. Go for it Roberta! Here’s something to really inspire you: at the age of 62 my grandmother when to college to become a paralegal. She was approaching retirement age and the state office where she had worked for so many years was moving from Manhattan to Albany, so she wanted to do something else. She worked for a law practice until she was diagnosed with ALS a few years later. She was pretty freakin’ awesome!
