Reese Witherspoon returned to her alma mater, Stanford, to give a talk to students -- and while she was there she took time out to drop by her old dorm room and meet its latest resident!
The 41-year-old actress and entrepreneur shared a photo of the meeting via Instagram: "Surprise!" she captioned it, "While re-visiting @Stanford, I popped by my old dorm room… and met its newest tenant, Caitlyn! She was so nice; she even welcomed me in!"
The Stanford alum finished off the caption with tree emojis and the hashtag #FearTheTree, referencing the school's mascot. 

Witherspoon, who apart from her Oscar-winning acting career has forged a successful name for herself as a businesswoman and entrepreneur, gave a talk at Stanford for its View From The Top speaker series.

Stanford Graduate School of Business also shared a snap via Instagram, along with a snippet of her talk.
"During her View From The Top talk yesterday, @ReeseWitherspoon advised us to seek out new challenges -- especially those that terrify us. 'You’re the one responsible for your own path, so throw yourself at it,'" they wrote.
Wise words!

ET recently caught up with the actress to chat about a potential second season of her hit HBO show, Big Little Lies.
