Looks like Lourdes Leon is college bound!

Madonna caused quite a stir on campus when she visited the University of Michigan with her daughter on Wednesday.

“There was a lot of excitement,” Lindsey Meekhof, a vocal performance senior there, tells PEOPLE.

“[Madonna’s] daughter was learning about our musical theater program,” Meekhof added. “Someone announced to my choir class Madonna was in the building, and choir wasn’t productive anymore after that.”

Dressed in black and wearing oversized sunglasses, the pop icon was apparently trying to go incognito as she exited the dean’s office at the music school with her daughter, 17.

Word spread quickly among students as Madonna and Lourdes – who reportedly played the role of Rizzo in her high school production of Grease – toured North Campus with a musical theater major and ate lunch at one of the residence halls.

“People that weren’t music school students were all over the area,” Meekhof said of the department located away from the university’s central campus. “Madonna tried to keep the attention on her daughter but … people were everywhere.”
