Meet Elijah, Brilliant Boy Who Became Youngest Full-time Student at a US Varsity

A brilliant boy identified as Elijah Precciely started taking business, biology, and physics courses at Southern University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana at the age of 8.

Three years later in 2018 when he turned 11, he became the youngest person to be enrolled as a full-time student at the university. Even more, he received a full-ride scholarship, and began majoring in Physics.

As a younger child, Elijah was home schooled, but when his parents saw his potential, they realized that he needed more support. “Find that child’s genius, what they like, and nurture that even if you have to seek outside help, then that’s what you do and that’s what we did,” Elijah father’s told The Advocate.

Very different from the average child, Elijah first started making his own inventions at an early age. He already knew what he wanted in life. He told a local station, “You have to have your mindset, ‘Oh I have to learn this.’ You have to have a mindset to actually know, ‘hey, I have to learn this; my life depends on it’. Act like your life depends on it because it does. When you learn, you’ve increased your life.”

In addition to making history as a young college student, Elijah is also a published author, hosts his own weekly radio show, and has applied for more than five patents for his inventions.
