EAST FLATBUSH -

Students across Brooklyn took part in the seventh annual College March as they get ready to take on the next chapter in their lives.

Students at Kurt Hahn High School were among those taking part in the event. The students marched to the post office with letters in hand to send off to the colleges of their choice.

Christopher Dacon, a student at Kurt Hahn High School, is just one of many students who took part in the march. He says it's important for him to get into college so that he has a good foundation to help him land his dream job.

Some of the students are the first in their family to head off to college. Either way the students all say they just want to make their parents proud.

Now the students have to wait and hope to hear back from their top choices.
