Scotty McCreery Tweets About His First Days at College

Being American Idol Season 10’s winner doesn’t make Scotty McCreery any different than other 18-year-olds, does it?

Okay, maybe a little. But his fall plans are very similar to other ordinary kids his age: attending College!

Scotty took to Twitter on Wednesday, writing, “been a good couple days getting settled in to college.. but now its time for a good weekend of shows!”

The singer is attending his father’s alma mater, North Carolina State University, and the school’s been bracing for his arrival since April. A rep for the college told Entertainment Weekly, “I don’t know of anybody coming in so well known initially. Most 18-year-olds don’t have the kind of exposure that someone like Mr. McCreery has.”

It’s true, we can’t think of any other incoming freshman who get to open for country superstar Brad Paisley or make surprise appearances on Conan!
