It was unclear if Alana ‘Honey Boo Boo’ Thompson would even go to college as she did not even appear to want to apply. Her sister, Pumpkin, was constantly asking her about applications but she kept avoiding it altogether. Finally, she was accepted to Regis University in Colorado and was even granted a $21K/year scholarship. Of course, things came crashing down when her boyfriend, Dralin Carswell got into trouble. Therefore, she did not know if he would be able to come with her. Along with that, Alana’s oldest sister, Anna Cardwell was diagnosed with stage 4 adrenal carcinoma.

This made the decision to leave extremely hard because there was one final issue. Finances were not in her favor since her scholarship covered about half of her year’s tuition. She asked Mama June for the money from her Coogan account to pay for the rest but that was all but gone. Luckily, Alana was able to head out to school in Colorado. Sadly, Anna passed away in December 2023 which made followers wonder if she would go back. She was also seen in Georgia when the school was not on break. Alana cleared up all of the confusion and now she has taken to her Instagram to share a big update.
