When I applied to colleges during my senior year of high school, the only thing on my mind was saving money and staying close to my family. This landed me at Mount Holyoke College, a small liberal arts women’s college in western Massachusetts. As one of the first people in my family to go to college, I had no idea how biased and divided today’s campuses have become. Mount Holyoke is only a couple of miles from where I grew up, but it was still a cultural shock for me, especially during my first-year orientation, when I witnessed students cutting another student’s ponytail on stage in front of my class as an act of “feminist liberation.” Though I identified as a Republican because of my grandfather’s influence, I was not very educated on conservative principles, and I certainly did not consider myself an activist.

As an undocumented immigrant brought to the United States as a child, Sanchez has been protected from deportation by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, which faces an uncertain future amid the Trump Administration’s pledges to wind it down. “I saw my classmates and they were really excited,” the 18-year-old tells TIME. “I felt like something was being taken away from me.” DACA has shielded some 700,000 undocumented immigrants, allowing them to attend school and take jobs, but DACA recipients are not eligible for federal student aid and their access to state- and college-based aid varies. Despite being a leader in her California high school and one of the top students in her class, Sanchez struggled to grapple with the idea that she may not be able to attend school because she … [Read more...] about These Dreamers’ Future in America Is in Doubt.

Ivanka Trump is arguably the most well-known of Donald Trump's children. She's a former model. She's got her own line of clothing, handbags and footwear. She serves as Executive Vice President of Development and Acquisitions at The Trump Organization. And she's appeared on her father's hit show "The Apprentice" for years, as an adviser and boardroom judge. Born in 1981, Ivanka is the second-oldest child of Donald Trump and his first wife, Ivana. And tonight, she'll be taking the podium to introduce her father as he formally accepts the Republican nomination. That's a pretty prime spot. And she's received it because she comes across as both eloquent and well educated... a point which begs the question, where exactly did she receive her education? Ivanka spent her first two college years at Georgetown University (her brother Eric's alma mater). In her junior year, however, she transferred to the Wharton School of Finance at the University of Pennsylvania. She graduated from Wharton in … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Where did Ivanka Trump go to college?
