College should be affordable for everyone, argues student

As a college student who grew up on a military base and in a southern town, 22-year old Daphne Hines has a unique perspective on the world.

Her father was a United States Airman, so Daphne spent ten years of her childhood living on an Air Force base. Daphne thrived on the base. The community was global, diverse, and welcoming, and exposed her to foreign languages and cultures. The tight-knit support structure sometimes felt like a large extended family: “The bonds of the military community were stronger bonds than the differences of race or ethnicity,” she says.

Logan Students Visit WVSU

Students from the Appalachian Center for Equality's BAPS (Believing All is Possible!) mentoring program in Logan, WV visited West Virginia State University, a historically black univerity, in April 2012.  During our time on campus, we met with the Director of the Upward Bound program, attended the Multicultural Day activities, toured the campus, and met with a financial aid officer to learn about scholarship opportunities.  By the end of the day, the students were very excited about the prospect of attending WVSU.
