FC: NO ROOF OVER HIGHER EDUCATION By: Ke'Andrea Ayers

1: This is my partner Shelton "Jae" Murphy. We are working on a documentary for a broadcast class we're into together. The documentary features the lives of homeless college students and it's called "No Roof Over Higher Education." | Behind the Scenes: No Roof Over Higher Education

2: This is a typical hallway at an average school seen the way the average student would see it. | But we wanted to see the college experience in a different light and look at it through the lens of a homeless college student.

3: Mission one in this journey: Find Homeless college students. Even if it meant taking a road trip.

4: The beautiful scenery in Baltimore didn't make the trip all that bad though.

6: First Stop: Morgan State University in Baltimore Maryland.

7: This is Eugene Selestain. He is 21, a student at Morgan State University in Baltimore and homeless. | "My first thought when I get to class is not let me turn in this paper for Professor so and so or Dr. so and so. It's where am I going to go after this?"

8: Meet 25 year old President L. Davis. Like Eugene, President didn't always have a roof over his head.

9: For two weeks while in school, this was his home.

10: President moved from Richmond California to DC with the determination to get into Howard University. When tuition ended up being more than expected he had to make a choice between paying tuition and paying rent. | This is the hostile President was living in when he moved to DC.

11: President ran low on cash and eventually ended up moving out of the hostile and slept under the slides at Pentworth Park on Georgia Avenue. | "I just remember tapping into the survival skills I had developed from California." -Davis

12: Sleeping on the streets is not the case for all college students. For some, it means hopping from couch to couch. | This is he case for Mr. Selestain. After class every he finds one of his friends couches to crash on.

13: Hakeem Tey and Darnell Thomas. Friends of Mr. Selestain

14: This is Neil Donovan. He is the Director for the National Coalition for the homeless. | He provided a lot of insight for our project and put the issue in perspective.

15: "A typical day for a college student who is homeless is hell." | FACT: According to an educational article, over 47,000 students checked that they were homeless on their financial aid applications.

16: Donovan sheds light on the fact that some students are willing to say in school even if it means being homeless....

17: because they feel earning a degree is their only way out.

18: President is now a junior at Howard University. He has his own place to say and a job.

19: Eugene is still battling homelessness but is learning to take it one step at a time. | "I just take it as that's life and at the end of this I'll definitely have a story to tell." -Selestain
