Obama Proclaims November National College Application Month

“This month, let us strive to expand access to quality higher education for all people and to make real our nation’s promise of opportunity,” Obama said in his announcement. “…I call upon public officials, educators, parents, students, and all Americans to observe this month with appropriate ceremonies, activities, and programs designed to encourage students to make plans for and apply for college.”

Obama has set a goal that the US will have the highest proportion of college graduates of any country in the world by 2020. First Lady Michelle Obama is championing that effort through Reach Higher — an initiative aimed at encouraging every American student to pursue higher education.

Let’s make that goal a reality! Apply now!
