"Anyone can find the college that's right for them. But you have to take the process seriously, use every resource at your disposal, and you have to do the homework." That is the advice given to teens by the narrator of this video, which presents a comprehensive look at the process of choosing a college. That process begins in freshman year of high school with choosing the right courses and developing strong study skills. It ends in senior year with the actual process of applying to colleges and making the final choice.

In addition to the narrator, three college students talk about how they handled the process, and a high school guidance counselor and a college admissions officer give advice based on their own perspectives. The video is packed with information for students on how to choose courses, how to decide on a major, the importance of extracurricular activities, how to approach standardized tests such as the SAT, how to finance their college education, and how to know that a college is really right for them. Follow-up activities in the Teacher's Resource Book will reinforce the video's message and offer students the opportunity to review and assess their understanding of the material.
