Join The Rachael's First Week 2nd Season of SafeTEA Podcast To Learn More About Challenges Freshman Face In College


Rachael Fiege was a lovely young lady that died during her first few days as a freshman college student.  Her death could have easily been avoided if she and others around her had been better prepared for the challenges college freshman face. 

Whether you are scheduled to leave for college or not, being prepared for the next chapter in your life is important.  The social pressures and decisions you will be facing are different, more numerous, and more intense than those currently experienced. 

Allow me to invite you to subscribe and listen to SafeTEA, a podcast produced by Rachael’s First Week, a non-profit established to honor the life of Rachael, to help prepare you as you transition from high school to college or whatever you have chosen as the next chapter of your life. 

Below is a note from Rachael’s parents:

We are one day away!!! Tomorrow starts Season 2 of our podcast SafeTEA by Rachael’s First Week. 

As many of you already know tomorrow, August 23rd, is also the day that we lost Rachael. This year, in order to celebrate her life, we are posting the first episode of our podcast in honor and memory of Rachael.  Help us celebrate by listening and giving us a review on Apple Podcasts. Our goal is to flood Apple with 5 Stars🌟 and make the Top 200! You can use the QR code above to easily navigate to our podcast on Apple.

Please let your friends and family know and thank you as always for your support!
