  • Tuesday, October 27

"Dee-1 keeps it real as he uses his relatable college experience to talk to students about the higher education decisions they’ll be making and what they can mean for their future. If Dee-1 could talk to his younger, high school self, no doubt he’d be laying down how important applying for free money first is. Filing the FAFSA and applying for scholarships could save your students hundreds, even thousands!"
