Michelle Obama wants college more accessible

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama are looking to make it easier for low-income and disadvantaged students to go to college.


Thursday, they hosted a summit at the White House aimed at expanding college opportunities.


During the event, First Lady Michelle Obama spoke about her own decision to apply to college and how her brother impacted her choice.


"If Princeton hadn't found my brother as a basketball recruit, and if I hadn't seen that he could succeed on a campus like that, it never would have occurred to me to apply to that school. Never," said Mrs. Obama.


Mrs. Obama is looking to make improving access and outcomes in education, the hallmark of her final three years as first lady.
