First lady Michelle Obama and 106 & Park host Bow Wow accompanied some very lucky juniors and seniors from Chicago public high schools to Howard University to tour the college campus.

Thursday marked the first day of their four-day visit to Mecca, where Mrs. Obama and dozens of students visited Frazier Hall, The Quad, and Blackburn.

Mrs. Obama, who attended Princeton and Harvard, told the students later at a town hall: “We have to have a hunger for education like we had when our parents and grandparents were fighting for us to have a right to come to these schools and get the education. So now it’s up to you all to take that baton and do the very best you can with it.”
