Students at a Challenge Success partner school, Miramonte High School, recognized that an over-emphasis on getting into “big name” colleges was leading to undue levels of stress in their school community. To promote a healthier approach to the college process, they designed a series of posters to be placed around their school that highlighted what colleges well-known scientists, engineers, novelists, journalists, and actors attended. (Hint: they aren’t brand name schools.)
