#WhyApply (to college) Day is asocial media campaign sponsored by the American College Application Campaign (ACAC), which partners with thousands of high schools across the country each fall to host events supporting students through the college application process. Here at DCAN, we strive to support all Detroit area students, especially first-generation college students and those from low-income families who may not otherwise apply a postsecondary institution.
This campaign encourages everyone to wear college gear (t-shirt, hats, pins, etc.) and share why you believe students should apply to college and/or why you applied to college, using the hashtag #WhyApply on your favorite social media platform (TikTok, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter). Check out the DCAN team and some of our leadership team members #WhyApply!!!
