What College Life Is Really Like For Stranger Things Star Noah Schnapp

What College Life Is Really Like For Stranger Things Star Noah Schnapp

College can be a daunting experience. Leaving home, meeting new people, and taking on tough courses can be a lot, but Noah Schnapp seemed to be handling it well as he got into his first year. When speaking with Teen Vogue in August 2022, the “Stranger Things” shared how great things were going. “Oh my god, it’s been awesome,” he said. “I love it here and it’s great to be meeting new people, meeting new faces, and building a new network, and becoming a part of a new community.” Although he admitted it’s been a big change, the actor expressed he’s been having an “exciting” time.

As for what Schnapp is studying in college … well, you may be surprised it’s not theater arts, at least not for his major. He decided to focus on a business degree. “Entrepreneurship and Innovation at Wharton is the title [of his degree],” He told Teen Vogue. “I’m probably going to minor in film as well just to learn a little bit more in that field, obviously, you know why.” It doesn’t seem like Schnapp has hit any of the tough courses just yet. In August 2023, the actor revealed to Variety that he had taken a sushi-making class and a history of film class. 

Schnapp seemed to kick off his first year of college with great memories, but it hasn’t come without some hiccups. It looks like the actor’s celebrity status may have made it a bit harder to adjust to life in college.
