Just on the heels of Robert F.Smith's generous donation, Morehouse College is introducing a new way to combat student loan debt.

It announced the Morehouse College Student Success Program, which will serve as a fundraising initiative with the purpose of reducing or eliminating student loan debt for alumni.

"[The program] will provide students with a liberating gift that will wipe away or greatly reduce their student loans, allowing them to pursue their dreams and lead lives of leadership and service immediately after graduation,” said David A. Thomas, president of Morehouse College, in a statement.

It will accept donations and solicit funding towards the new graduates' debt.

Through the program many more generations of Morehouse Men will be able to start their post grad years with finiancial freedom.
