Barack and Michelle Obama’s 19-year-old daughter, Malia, is officially a college student after her parents dropped her off at Harvard University earlier this week.

Malia, who took a gap year after graduating from high school at Sidwell Friends, officially joined the ranks of incoming college freshman when she moved into a Harvard dorm in Cambridge, Massachusetts, on Monday.

The official move-in day for Harvard was Tuesday, but some students, including Malia, opted to move in a day early.

Former President and Mrs. Obama were spotted as they left their oldest child and headed out of the dorm after dropping her off.
