<p><span></span>So much for the old college try! <em>Life & Style</em> has exclusively learned that <a href="http://dynamic.bauerpublishing.com/mt-search.fcgi?blog_id=2&tag=emma roberts&limit=20&IncludeBlogs=2"><strong>Emma Roberts</strong></a>, who was a freshman at Sarah Lawrence College, has decided to put her studies on hold -- for now.</p>
"She's taking a break from Sarah Lawrence," a friend of hers tells the new issue of Life & Style, on newsstands now. The 20-year-old actress' rep confirms to Life & Style, "Due to work commitments, Emma has had to defer her college experience."
The friend adds that Emma's romance with Glee's Chord Overstreet, 22, is also a factor; he lives in LA and Sarah Lawrence is located in Bronxville, N.Y. "Emma's in love and wants to spend time with Chord," says the pal. "You can't blame her!"
And ever since the couple were first spotted getting cozy at the Coachella music festival in Indio, Calif., in April, they've been inseparable. It's no wonder Emma has wanted to extend their spring-summer romance into the winter!
