Kyle Rittenhouse responds to university attendance debacle

Kyle Rittenhouse on Monday tweeted that he’d be attending Blinn College after contradicting claims emerged over whether he would be attending Texas A&M University this year.

On a podcast episode of “The Charlie Kirk Show” posted Saturday, Rittenhouse said he would be attending Texas A&M, adding, “It’s going to be awesome.”

A representative for Texas A&M told news outlets including Insider, however, that Rittenhouse wasn’t enrolled for the coming fall and summer semesters. Citing legal restraints, the person told Insider they couldn’t say whether Rittenhouse had applied to the school or had been accepted for a later semester or whether it would consider accepting him at a future date.

In a tweet posted Monday, Rittenhouse said he had been “robbed” of his high-school career and would be attending the community college, which he described as a “feeder school” for Texas A&M.

A Blinn College representative told Insider that Rittenhouse had applied to the school but wasn’t enrolled for classes.

“Unfortunately, the end of my high school career was robbed from me,” Rittenhouse wrote. “I didn’t have the time other students get to properly prepare for the future. I look forward to attending Blinn College District this year, a feeder school for Texas A&M. I’m excited to join Texas A&M in 2023!”

Blinn College, which has five campuses in Texas, is an open-enrollment institution, which means all students are accepted. Rittenhouse has said that he plans to move to Texas in June.

Rittenhouse shot three people, killing two of them, during a BLM protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in 2020. Rittenhouse and his legal team argued that it was an act of self-defense. A jury later acquitted Rittenhouse on all charges, including first-degree homicide.
