You would have thought that Elena's mind would be elsewhere after the devastating death of Damon, but this strong-willed little lady will be heading back to college in season 6!
Elena might be heading back to Whitmore College, but just how willingly is up for debate. After all, as a vampire, she really doesn't have many places left to call home...
The anti-supernatural magic cast over Mystic Falls by Markos and the Travelers prevents Elena being able to set foot in her old town, but would she really want to go back after the loss of her true love and best friend?
But, what will her major be? According to [The Vampire Diaries](series:200853) executive producer, Julie Plec, Elena is set to follow in her fathers footsteps and study pre-med. Plec explained that;
She’s a smart girl, and Elena’s father was a doctor, so she’s trying to figure out how to help people and save people, just as her family did
Hearing about Elena's new focus helps to give the surge of new med school based characters some context.
I hate to say this, but maybe Marco Jame's new character Liam might be offering Elena a little bit of 'comfort' in light of her past tragedies? I mean, a hunk like that can't just be laying around single for long!
