#CelebNews Big Sean Donates $25K To Help Homeless College Students!



Big Sean is putting up some big bread to help college 

students in need.


While getting into college alone can be challenging at times, 

staying in there and living through it is an even bigger hurdle 

for some people. Big Sean hopes to make the experience a 

little easier for students at Wayne State University in his 

hometown Detroit.



The rapper is donating 

$25,000 through his Sean 


establish an endowment for 

WSU’s HIGH 

[Helping Individuals Go 

Higher] Program. The HIGH 

Program was founded in 

2013 to address student 

homelessness at the school. 

The program provides short-term assistance with the goal of 

returning students to long- term stability and helping them 

complete their degree.


Per release from WSU:

The HIGH (Helping Individuals Go Higher) Program helps financially stressed students at 

Wayne State University reach their goal to graduate. The program provides resources for 

students-in-need, such as housing support, textbooks and other school supplies, clothing, 

transportation, and child-care assistance. The mission of the program is to ensure that no 

student abandons their dream of earning a degree solely because of housing or financial 

challenges. 


The donation falls in line with what Big Sean has 

been rapping about for years. Throughout his 2012 

mixtape Detroit, Big Sean spoke on what he felt 

needed to happen the education system in his 

hometown and in cities across America.
