Parkland shooting survivor and teenage gun control activist David Hogg will be attending Harvard University in the fall with a major in political science, he said in a Saturday tweet.

TMZ first broke the news on Friday, which was followed shortly after by a tweet from Hogg’s 15-year-old sister, Lauren.

“Care to report on this? @Ingraham Angle,” she tweeted at the Fox News personality, Laura Ingraham, who has yet to respond.

Ingraham mocked Hogg in March, saying he “whines” about having been rejected to several colleges. She eventually apologized after online backlash and after Hogg called for an advertiser boycott of Ingraham’s show, “The Ingraham Angle.” Twenty-seven advertisers in all pulled out, though some have returned.

Ratings for “The Ingraham Angle” actually improved during the boycott. While Fox News did not remove her from air, she took a week-long vacation amid the ongoing backlash.

Hogg called for a second boycott of Ingraham’s show after she compared immigration detention centers to “summer camp” and broadly brushed off the growing outrage in liberal media over the issue.

Hogg is a survivor of the Feb. 14 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, in which 17 people were killed. In the wake of the tragedy, he was one of several students to help organize the March for Our Lives rally that pulled in 800,000 people pushing for gun reform.
