Malia Obama is heading to Harvard.
The White House announced Sunday that Barack and Michelle Obama's oldest daughter will attend Harvard University starting in fall 2017. A statement from the White House said she'll be taking a "gap year" before starting school.
As the president's daughter, the 17-year-old high schooler has had quite the pick of potential universities. Malia visited Harvard, Brown, Columbia, Princeton, Penn, Yale and more during the search process.
