School has never looked this cool.
The first lady hosted the third annual National College Signing Day event at N.Y.C.’s Harlem Armory on Tuesday, where she was joined by more than 4,000 New York high school students who will be making their college selections.
Michelle wore an oversized T-shirt from Princeton – one of her two Ivy League alma maters (the first lady attended both Princeton University and Harvard Law School) – to pose for a picture with some soon-to-be college freshman.
“Happy #CollegeSigningDay! Wear your college gear with pride and show us how you #ReachHigher,” she captioned the photo she posted on her Instagram.
That was just the beginning. A slew of celebrities joined Michelle in showing their college pride on National College Signing Day, described by the White House as “a tradition to celebrate students going to college the same way we celebrate athletes and celebrities.”
Of course, the celebrities were there to honor the real stars of the day: the college-bound teens.
As the first lady has said, “If we want to truly lead the world again in terms of young people with a college degree, we should celebrate students going to college the same way we celebrate athletes and celebrities. Education should be that important for every single person in this country.”
