Antonia Gorga is officially done with her freshman year of college at the University of Delaware.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

Melissa Gorga's only daughter and oldest child's journey to college has been documented throughout the first few episodes of Season 14 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. But Antonia is now home for the summer, joining her younger brothers in Melissa and Joe Gorga's Franklin Lakes home. Melissa dished to about Antonia's freshman year, revealing how her first year went and the one reason why she's not looking forward to having a packed house for the summer.

She also exclusively revealed what she thinks Antonia is going to major in at college.

What is Antonia Gorga majoring in at college?

Since appearing in front of RHONJ ​​​​​​​​​​​​cameras since Season 3, it shouldn't come as a surprise that Melissa told that Antonia is interested in "media" and "maybe communications." But, Melissa revealed that Antonia has another particular interest that she wants to pursue.

"Marketing, she loves marketing," she said. "So she's dabbling in all three. I do think she's leaning towards marketing, believe it or not. The last she told me she was leaning towards marketing. So that works. We can use all the marketing we can get in our family."

She has a point. Melissa currently has two locations of her boutique, Envy by Melissa Gorga, and her middle child, Gino, just launched his own clothing line. So, they could definitely use Antonia's newly learned skills from college.

Melissa Gorga was nervous Antonia Gorga wouldn't like college

So much happened for Antonia during her freshman year of college. She joined a sorority, attended formal, made new friends, and seemed to live her best life. According to Melissa, she had an "awesome" freshman year away from home, but told that she was scared for her at first. "She did so well, better than I thought she was," she said.

"I was scared at one point that she was going to go and turn around and come back. But she loved it. She loved it," she added. "She had a great time. She had just a great situation. She loved the campus."

Instead of running back to New Jersey, Antonia embraced college, making friends who have even followed her home: "She just got home last week or even like, a couple of days ago, and she's very happy. She already has all the girls at my house in the backyard at the pool. So she's doing good."

Antonia Gorga's Summer Plans

Now that Antonia has just a few months off before she has to go back to Delaware, she is embracing every second of it. Which means Melissa is back to having a full house again. While the mom of three told that she is happy to have her back, things are about to get chaotic again. 

"I don't know if I'm going to love all the girlfriends she's gonna bring the whole time. I feel like I'm gonna have a packed house," she said. "But I actually miss her and I miss the action that she brings to the house. So yeah, she was chasing her brothers around the whole entire house last night. I'm like, she's home. That's it. She's back. So I'm excited to have her back home."
