Danielle Fishel, who may be better known as Topanga from the hit '90s sitcom "Boy Meets World," announced that she finished college this week via her Tumblr page.

"I went back to school 4 years ago at 27 years old," Fishel wrote. "I had attempted to go a couple times before then, even going so far as to take my placement exams and sign up for classes, but I could never follow through and actually go. I was too afraid of being the old lady in class, of being whispered about, and especially of not remembering how to do simple math equations."

She later added that, she is "a very fortunate person," but "graduating from college is easily among my proudest achievements in life."

2012 turned out to be a year of announcements for the actress, who recently confirmed that she will be returning to the small screen to reprise her role as the quirky wife of Cory Matthews, played by Ben Savage, in "Girl Meets World." The upcoming reboot will chronicle the life of the couple's teenage daughter, Riley.
