Homeless College Students Should Not Be Encountering These Real Life Tests

College can be stressful enough without having to worry about the challenges of homelessness. With more awareness comes the opportunity to bring about change.

It seems to me that anyone who studies hard enough in high school to be accepted into college should also have the right to have a safe place to live while in college.

Why Does Homelessness Stir Such Anger?

Food for thought...
