Moms in College

This group is for moms of every age who attend college with children of any age. The successes and failures of a college mom is not determined by her intelligence or her motivation, but rather by material circumstances: difficulties with childcare, transportation, or even homelessness. By creating a support system for ourselves we can together through experience help each other solve the issues we all face, whether it be child care, financial aid, reselling text books for top dollar, or finding resources on college campuses. I welcome you all to this social support community of intelligent and intellectual women.
