What’s Your Story?

We know you have a story you are just dying to tell. Let’s face it: college isn’t a piece of cake. You might be the first in your family to head to college, or have to pay your way with a full-time job. To get through these four years, we often depend on other people to help us out: best friends, professors, mentors, and personal cheerleaders.

So tell us your story, and here’s what you could win:

We hope that this contest will inspire you to continue pushing through college and being the best student possible. It might be tough, but you can do it!

I can recall many frustrating moments during freshman year tearing my hair out over science classes, or wanting to throw a book out the window because it felt so useless. But then I’d remember how lucky I was to have my parents paying for my entire tuition. I’ll never have to worry about loan debt or making rent, and I should never take their sacrifices for granted.

That’s my story. Now what’s yours? With our newest contest, we want to give you the opportunity to pay tribute to the most important people in your life who have helped you on your path to finishing college. Honor them by telling us your story and how you’ve conquered your obstacles.
