Former President Obama's youngest daughter, Sasha, is enrolled at the University of Michigan and scheduled to start classes next week, The Detroit News reports.


According to the newspaper, a number of students attending the university’s recent freshman orientation saw the 18-year-old on campus earlier this week.

A third-year student, Zach Lassen, told the paper that he saw Sasha Obama, who was born Natasha, being accompanied on campus by security on Tuesday. 

"I was walking by pushing a vacuum and she walked out right in front of me," Lassen told the paper.

"I said, 'Excuse me.' It was a crowded hallway with her and some Secret Service dudes,” the film student continued.

Lassen told the university that some on campus were frustrated by the extra security but added that her reported enrollment at the school is "pretty cool."

The university declined to confirm her enrollment in a statement to the paper, citing its policy prohibiting such disclosures regarding students.

"We cannot confirm the enrollment of any student," Rick Fitzgerald, a spokesman for the university, said. "Classes do not start until next week, and we are weeks away from official enrollment information."

A spokeswoman for the former president’s daughter also declined to comment on the story to the paper. 

However, a number of students at the university have expressed excitement over the idea.

Jessica Brinser, a sophomore student, told the paper that she thinks “it's cool that even though her family went to Ivy League schools, she decided that UM was the caliber high enough to match that of an Ivy League school.”

"We hope she finds her fit here just like we all have," she added. "We all love it here. We hope she does, too."
