The 10-episode series, “A Student’s Guide to Your First Year of College,” will provide first-year students with information about financial aid, living independently, mentorships and more.

To provide additional support, there will be featured videos from Reach Higher’s Beating the Odds Summit that took place last month at Howard University.

The trailer for the upcoming series is live and the series will premiere Sep. 4 on the NowThis YouTube channel.
