Vanessa Hudgens conquered the halls of East High in Disney's "High School Musical," but the 24-year-old actress may be taking her talents to a campus near you. In an interview with Cosmo on Campus, Hudgens expressed a growing interest in going to college.
"I got into acting young and I wasn't as fascinated with learning as I am now," she said. "The older I get, the more curious I become. I'd like to study film or photography one day."
Hudgens definitely has the discipline to thrive in a college setting. According to the "Frozen Ground" star, she is turned put off by the Hollywood party scene, preferring a more humble crowd.

"I have never liked partying; I love dancing, but that's as far as it goes," she said. "It's tough because a lot of clubs are everything I loathe, especially in L.A. They're always very ego-filled and people get up to mischief. It's just not a pure environment. I stay away from [drugs] because I know it's smart to steer clear."
Still, Hudgens confessed that there are exceptions to the rule. The actress,who famously split with Disney co-star and recovering addict Zac Efron in 2010, revealed that partying with friends is a great remedy for a recent heartbreak.
"When a girlfriend is going through a break-up, you have to go out and dance. With your best friends, you've got to be there for them no matter what," she told the British student mag. "love taking my girlfriends away from their worries and enjoying life with them. If there's a problem, a bottle of wine goes a long way. It's the same after a long week of filming-a glass of wine and a bit of chocolate makes me happy. And I love a theme party! Give me a theme and I will dress up like there's no tomorrow."
Yeah, this starlet is definitely ready for college. Check out a list of celebs with degrees in the slideshow below.
