Why uAspire?

I knew college was my next step but I was uncertain on how to proceed as a first-generation student. College affordability is important to all students. While it was challenging to navigate the higher education system, I am glad I managed to overcome the ups and downs. To me, joining uAspire is about helping students believe they can succeed.
