Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez attempted to have a normal college experience last September when the best pals visited Swift’s younger brother, Austin, at the University of Notre Dame.

Looking to see what it was like to be regular college students, the girls did their best to acclimate, but to no avail. “So we fly to Notre Dame and decide we’re gonna fit in,” Swift recalls in Gomez's upcoming E! special. “We went and we got all this Notre Dame gear so we’re like wearing the Notre Dame jacket and the Notre Dame visor and we learned that’s not how you fit in at college, evidently.”

The girls' collegiate apparel wasn't enough to downplay their star status, and the experiment soon came to an end. “As we were walking around, masses of people ended up following us,” Swift adds. “And yes, they had to call security, but it’s all we have that’s close to a normal college experience.”

This wasn't the first time Swift's caused a ruckus on campus. According to the University Daily Kansan, the country star visited her friend, Abigail Anderson, at the University of Kansas in 2009 and, with the help of fast-spreading texts and tweets, dozens of students flocked to a lecture hall to meet the singer.

'E! Entertainment Special: Selena Gomez,' in which the pop star opens up about everything from her parents divorce to being a role model, airs on June 20 at 10 PM.
