Virtual Viewing Party of "Unlikely" Documentray

The Academic Success Center staff would like to invite the FPU community to join us in watching and discussing the documentary “Unlikely” on Friday, May 7, 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. To RSVP, please fill out this form and a Zoom link will be sent to you. The film is about one and a half hours long and then we will have a short time of discussing the film in small groups. Here is a synopsis of the film:

 

In the US less than 50% of students who start college ever finish, making America’s college completion rates among the worst in the world. Now there are more than 35 million Americans who started college but never finished, leaving them saddled with debt, and behind their peers in earning power. Featuring interviews with LeBron James, Howard Schultz and our nation's leading voices in education, this penetrating and personal new film investigates America’s college dropout crisis through the lives of five diverse students as they fight for a second chance at opportunity and highlights the innovators reimagining higher education for the 21st century.

We look forward to spending time with you and discussing how we as a community can support our FPU students!
