You can help other students get to and through college by sharing your story and advice! The #webelongincollege Campaign encourages you to share a story about a time when you questioned whether you belonged in college either when you were applying to or while you were in college. Your story can help others know that they are not alone, and that even though we all struggle - we all belong in college. Share your story for a chance to win a $1,000 college scholarship every month through October.
