Today Iowa College Aid releases the first video in the “Education Empowers” series, interviews with students on issues facing students who are making the transition to college from high school. Students of lower income, students of color and first generation students (those students who are the first in their family to continue into higher education) often find themselves unprepared for many of the changes that await them in college.
We’ve interviewed professionals who faced many of those issues to provide insight that can help students prepare and succeed in college. College is possible and we’re here to help! Please let us know your thoughts on this first video and share your ideas for subjects that students might find useful in future installments.
