TCU has been ‘simple’ for 12-year-old student

The youngest student to enroll at TCU says school is a breeze.

“For now, I think that all my classes have been pretty simple,” sophomore Carson Huey-You said.

Huey-You was admitted to the university in 2013, when he was just 11 years old. He is majoring in quantum physics and is expected to graduate in 2017. 

Huey-You is taking four classes and a lab. He is also in the physics club, the Chinese club and the chemistry club.

“Right now I am in Electromagnetism and Optics,” Huey-You said. “But later on I will have to do quantum physics and that may be challenging in the future.”

Dr. Magnus Rittby, senior associate dean of the College of Science and Engineering, has been mentoring Huey-You.

“I don’t do his homework and I don’t even see his homework problems,” Rittby said. “We only walk through the material and I’ll try to guide him towards what is important.”

Rittby said Huey-You is doing relatively well in fitting in with the “university life” and that it’s a “challenge to be 12 and go to college.”

Huey-You said, “TCU has taught me how to be a much better student and at being more organized. It has also taught me to just have a schedule really.”

When Huey-You is not doing assignments, he is playing his favorite game, Minecraft, or attending football games.
