This video has some terrible production values. It's in low resolution, and has giant black bars on the side — so it's not really up to our usual "HD standards" here at This Week In College Prep.  But...FORGET ALL THAT! Because the video itself is so great, that we're going to feature it this week anyway.

In this 13 minute clip, you'll meet six students who are the first in their family to go to college, like:

• Rena Priest, who grew up on an Indian reservation in the Pacific Northwest

• Gabe Carmona, whose mother and her 12 siblings grew up picking crops in Texas, and

• Eric Polk, the first student in his Nashville high school to go to Wake Forest University

So ignore the low quality of video, and enjoy these truly inspiring stories...
