According to ABCNews:BetterMakeRoom.org will be a place for students ages 14-19 to get information on such matters as signing up for the SAT and ACT exams, filling out federal financial aid forms and applying to college, aides said.

The United States is one of the largest industrial nations in the world, but the rising cost of college seems to be keeping people from attending these days. No one wants to end up $100,000 or more in student loan debt for an undergraduate degree we all know is the modern day equivalent of a high school diploma.
