College, college, college: it seems like that’s what is expected of all high school students. What if college isn’t the right path for you? Get the perspective of someone who didn’t go to college and has started a social movement challenging the notion that college is the only path to success. On Thursday, October 10th, founder of uncollege.org and author of Hacking Your Education, Dale J. Stephens will tell his story and discuss how students can create their own education.
