It’s never too early for high schoolers to begin thinking about college. So ABC News reports that Malia Obama may have an eye toward Stanford University, even though she will be starting her high school junior year in a few weeks.

The television news station reports that the elder first daughter recently wore “a Stanford University T-shirt while on a bike ride with her parents in Martha’s Vineyard.”
