In March 2013, Mendler said in an interview with the Daily Mail that the fact her boyfriend is also her on-screen boyfriend on Good Luck Charlie doesn't disturb the relationship: "I think it makes it easier, especially when it's a person who you've worked with for a long time." To Classicalite, Mendler talked about dating Harper, and said it took time for them to begin something, because she needed time to think. She said: "We knew each other for a while, were friends for a long time. I think everybody was very respectful about it and wanted to make sure that it wouldn't be weird."

I'm just going to study something that will be interesting and doable from the road and just take care of my general education courses for now. I want to know something outside of what I do." In 2013, she chose Anthropology and studied Jazz History, Medieval Visual Culture and Medical Anthropology. To Ernest Macias of University Star, Mendler said the USC was important for she doesn't have a formulaic career: "I think seeing that college life and what that would’ve been like, it does make you wonder what sort of lifestyle that would be, but I’m really grateful for what I have, and I think it’s cool that, because my career path is not as formulaic, I can kind of decide when I want to take time off to do certain things." Mendler has doctorate plans, inspired by her mother, doctor of public policy.
