Before Reese Witherspoon became an Academy Award winning actress, she was just a Nashville girl that went all the way to Stanford for college. (some life, huh?)

The reason Elle Woods didn't think getting into Harvard law was hard was because Reese Witherspoon went to Stanford— Erin MacAdam (@emaccc_) July 25, 2016
Reese Witherspoon went to Stanford? Wow what a woman— audri (@jakesgylenhaal) May 21, 2017
[Witherspoon was an English Literature major there in the 90s, but eventually dropped out to pursue acting full time.]
The Big Little Lies star revisited her old stomping grounds on Saturday, when she served as a guest speaker at Stanford's business school.
Reese took a detour though, and stopped by her old dorm room -- totally surprising its new resident, Caitlyn.
“I turned toward the door and all I see is Reese Witherspoon peeking in,” Caitlyn told Inside Edition. “She was like, ‘Can we come in?’ My jaw dropped.”
Pretty cool, huh?
