Singer Hilary Duff has been taunted by fellow students at America's exclusive Harvard University, where she is currently attending classes.

The SO YESTERDAY star comes under fire in campus newspaper THE CRIMSON whose editorial team are angry she has told the world she attends the university because she didn't take the stringent entrance exam - and she hasn't taken part in any of the education establishment's traditional activities.

Duff is part of the Harvard Extension School - a distance learning programme which allows her to take classes online without actually attending the university proper.

The newspaper reads, "It's one thing to say you go to Harvard, but it's another to live la vida Harvard.

"Have you, par example, been punched by the Bee Club? Or attended the Daedalus Final Club?"
