Former first lady Michelle Obama is set to debut an original YouTube series geared toward first-year college students.

Obama and her education initiative, Reach Higher" teamed up with NowThis and YouTube to produce a 10-episode "crash course" on how to navigate the first year of college, Newsweek reports.

The new project titled, "Guide to Your First Year of College" has a release date of Sept. 4.

The Harvard and Princeton grad understands how overwhelming the first year can be, and even more so for first-generation college students like herself, who may grapple with internal pressure to succeed. 

In the trailer for the upcoming series released on Tuesday Obama said, "When my dad dropped me off at college, I remember feeling overwhelmed and I have a feeling that some of you might know what I'm talking about. You're not the only ones."

The learning playlist will cover topics ranging from personal wellness to applying for financial aid and finding a mentor.
