One University of Memphis student is never on campus without his parents. This isn't because Arun Jambulapati has been coddled into an extended adolescence. Jambulapati hasn't even reached adolescence. He's 12 years old.

Jambulapati began taking classes at the university -- along with his middle school curriculum -- when he was just 10, reports WMC-TV. After he proved his maturity and intellectual prowess, university officials allowed him to enroll full-time, although he lacked a few of the requirements for normal admission, like a high school diploma, or a fifth grade education.
