It's like something picked right out of my brain. This is incredible!" —Endri Horanalli, Hunter College Graduate College is a time of both great opportunities and great challenges. Regardless of your background, obstacles and adversity are sure to come your way.

Whether you are the first in your family to attend college or come from a long line of graduates, are attending college right after high school or are going back to school later in life while balancing a career, I Can Finish College will take you through all central experiences, mysteries, and relationships that you'll encounter leading up to graduation and beyond.
