Why Not Us?
The College Board, in partnership with Roadtrip Nation, created the compelling Why Not Us? documentary. Follow the journeys of four young people – all first in their families to go to college – as they roadtrip across the country to interview inspiring individuals who were also first in their families to pursue higher education. Counselors can download the documentary, companion discussion guide, learn about the students, and view a five-minute promotional trailer.
