Daria and the other seniors at Lawndale High (well, most of them anyway) are on their way to college. However, Daria's difficulty in getting into the same college as Tom begins to put a greater strain on their relationship, while Jane begins to question the necessity of entering college when the only future she's interested in is that of the arts. Meanwhile, Jodie's hopes of going to an all-black college are on the verge of being dashed by her parents, and it's up to Mack to save the day. Brittany can't get any
information from Kevin about his college plans, Mrs. Barch thinks Mr. O'Neill wants to marry him, and Quinn takes a job at a restaurant where she meets a friend who's already in college and spends more time hitting
the bottle than the books.
