The ambitious staff of student-run blog NYU Local have confirmed that the Runaways star is officially enrolled as a university freshman. All it took was some fishing around the school's e-mail system, which allows anyone with an account to view the addresses of their peers via an auto-complete feature. Though members have the option of making their contact info private, Fanning's is currently on display for anyone who cares to look. Memo to Dakota: Start getting tough now. This kind of lax attitude is the exact sort of thing that leads your classmates to believe they can get away with uploading cell-phone photos of you sleeping through seminar. [NYU Local via Gawker]
