What is #RealCollege?

#RealCollege Movement’s Fifth Anniversary!

The evidence is clear: it’s time to stop being polite and start getting real about why so many students are leaving college without degrees.  Life, logistics, and the lack of cash are getting in the way.

That’s why the #RealCollege movement is redefining what it means to be a student-ready college. Food and housing security are essential conditions of learning. Students need enough to eat and a safe place to sleep in order to graduate.
