Foster care students currently attending high school were at Texas A&M University-Kingsville Thursday for a preview of college.

The students learned what help they can receive when transitioning from high school to the college life. Foster children who reside in Texas can have their college tuition and fees waived.

The event was hosted by the TAMUK Fostering Towards Success student organization support group.
