INDIANAPOLIS – Turns out Millie Bobby Brown is staying true to her "Stranger Things" roots in her choice of college.

According to a new interview with Allure magazine, Brown is an online college student at Purdue University.

Brown, 18, is studying human services, where "you learn about the system and how to help young people," according to Allure.

Purdue's Human Services program is "designed to provide students with basic knowledge in human development and family studies, skills for working with people in service agencies, and program evaluation skills," according to the website.

"Stranger Things" takes place in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana. In the show, Brown plays Eleven, a young girl with telekinetic abilities.
