How aware were you of the celebrity? Was there ever any noticeable paparazzi? How did students react? (I'm thinking most people would try to be "too cool" to care, but I feel like some must've been fannish, even in private with friends.)
I'm not really sure what to search for because I'm just looking for a variety of experiences. Trying variations of "going to school/college with a celebrity" just gets hits of going to school with people before they were famous or where celebs went to school.
