The First Lady wants to help you get to and through your postsecondary education.

Inspired by her own experience as a first-generation college student, First Lady Michelle Obama wanted to help more young people go to and graduate from college.
In 2014, she started Reach Higher, an initiative for families, schools, and communities to support all students in pursuing rewarding postsecondary opportunities; and in 2015, she announced the Better Make Room campaign to directly reach underserved, college-aspiring youth.

Now, Better Make Room has launched. It’s a free tool created by education experts that walks you all the way through the college process, from applications to graduation and beyond -- all through texting.
