Madonna's Instagram: 'It's that kind of day!'

Lourdes Follows Madonna, Enrolls at University of Michigan

True Blue (and maize)! Madonna's daughter, Lourdes Leon, will be sporting University of Michigan's primary colors this fall, as she just enrolled as a freshman at the Ann Arbor college.

The 17-year-old eldest offspring of the famed pop legend is following in her mother's footsteps, as Madonna attended the University of Michigan in the late 1970s.

Lourdes, who is the Material Girl's one daughter with ex Carlos Leon, is registered in the university's directory as a student in the undergraduate music, theatre, and dance program, in pursuit of a bachelor's degree in fine arts in musical theatre. The New York City-raised teen chose to use her nickname of Lola to register for the college's communications.

Michigan native Madonna, who dropped out of the school before completing her degree to pursue her illustrious pop career, posted a photo via Instagram on Tuesday, June 24, showing some Wolverine pride. She shared a shot of The M Den, the University of Michigan's merchandise store in Ann Arbor.

'I think I'll stop in here!' Madonna captioned the photo. '#unapologeticbitch'

This isn't the first time that Madonna has visited the midwest college in recent months. In November 2013, she was spotted touring the UMich campus with Lourdes. 'I want my daughter to go to school there,' Madonna said of UM in 2012. 'I keep telling her, Ann Arbor is an awesome place.' Born Madonna Ciccone, the Grammy winner attended the school on a dance scholarship, but left for New York City to chase her performing dreams, where she struggled for a few years before making a name for herself.

The U of M Musical Theatre department is probably the top ranked program of its kind in the country, so there is no way she would have gotten in as a celebrity applicant. You really do have to be a well-rounded and well-educated actor, not just someone who can sing and dance. Go Lola !!!

Agreed with Pablo. Her kids are brilliant! Like mother like daughter! In the Evidence of the Ciccone Family's Brilliance!

Pablo Cancino

Fabulous!, she will become a great actress, she speaks several languages, knows how to play the piano, her father is an actor, her Mother is a great performer, she loves to dance and is very creative, maybe she could be a hollywood or Brodway star, she is very authentic, all of Madonna's children have artistic skills and i'm sure she has supported them on their dreams
