Portrait of Dejah Humbert

Dajah Humbert was determined to go to a college outside of Indiana until she attended a Red Carpet Day at IU and was invited to the “Lunch with Larry and Campus Partners” program. At the luncheon, she met other prospective and current students and IU staff members. She even learned about a wonderful scholarship opportunity with Hudson and Holland. According to Dajah, "If I did not attend ‘Lunch with Larry,’ I would never have gotten that amazing scholarship."
