After a 2-year absence, Emma Watson is finally returning to her original alma mater, Brown University. The "Perks of Being A Wallflower" actress reportedly is expected to resume her studies at the Providence, R.I, school in January.

Watson used her time off extremely well. She finished up the "Harry Potter" series, studied abroad at Oxford, and filmed several movies, including the aforementioned "Perks" and Sophia Coppola's upcoming movie, "The Bling Ring."

Brown allegedly has not always been kind of its most famous student. When Watson left the school in 2011, rumors swirled that she had been victim of teasing about her "Harry Potter" past. The New York Daily News reported that a student once yelled, "Three points for Gryffindor!" when Watson answered a question in class.

Watson has always vociferously denied this, writing on her website, "I have never been bullied in my life and certainly never at Brown."
