“They helped me transition into VCU, which was honestly something that I really wanted to do even aside from being in the Pathways program,” White said. “I remember when I was in community college, my dad and I would often go up to Richmond. We’d drive through Richmond, and I felt like a little kid on Christmas, pressed up against the glass watching all of these students just en masse walking throughout campus. And I was like, ‘That’s so cool. I want to be one of those students,’ because it just felt like an authentic college experience, one that I had never had up until that point.”
