#RealCollege focuses on the struggles, triumphs, and realities of what it means to be in college today. Through education, innovation, and collective action we seek to change the landscape of higher education so that all students can afford and complete their studies.
Too many students leave college without credentials because life, logistics, and a lack of money got in the way. These #RealCollege students are the new majority, but they are often ignored. Keep up with #RealCollege stories and updates in the News.
The media story of the typical college student – one who is lazy, goofing off, and entitled – doesn’t reflect the vast majority of students today struggling to make it to graduation. We’re ready to tell another story, the real story.
Use your voice to change the story. What do you wish your professors knew? Your college President? We want to hear from the students. This is your forum tell the real stories of what it’s like to attend college today. It’s your story.
We want our followers to have the best access to the latest news about the issues and challenges facing our students. Check out our blog, filled with exciting speeches and messages from our supporters.
