11 Year Old Enrolls as a Phsyics Major at Texas College

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) – The hardest part of college life for Carson Huey-You is the weight of the books he must carry in his backpack.


After all, Carson’s only 4-foot-7, 75 pounds – and 11 years old as he embarks on his freshman year at Texas Christian University.


He became TCU’s youngest student ever when classes started last week. The physics major says he plans to be a quantum physicist.


The Southlake child graduated in May as co-valedictorian from a privateGrapevine high school at age 10. He scored 1770 on his SAT, and his mother, Claretta Huey-You, says Carson was reading by age 2. She says numbers and math came easily to him, he plays classical music on the piano, and he can speak Mandarin Chinese.


Now he’s learning the TCU Fight Song.
