It's a happy day when college acceptance letters arrive and high school students start on their journey to obtain a postsecondary degree. But students who are the first in their families to attend a university face unique challenges, particularly if they lack mentors to help guide them through the complexities of college life.
The T2C Studio: Grand Rapids Center for College Success program offers that guidance, getting students "to and through" college. High school and college students who reach out to T2C can find support in determining what colleges are best for them, completing college applications and financial aid forms, locating scholarship opportunities, and more.
