Learning Korean?

Hello, all! I'm a high school senior (now!) with an early interest in languages, for background. I'm already taking French and starting Spanish along with it this year. Those are the only foreign language classes offered at my school. While I'm pretty good at French already (for my level, anyway) and look forward to starting Spanish, the language I've always been most interested in is Korean--especially now, as most of my friends are international students. The problem is that I have no idea where to start this journey. Do many colleges offer Korean classes? Are there any websites or books you would recommend? Or is the best option to simply hire a tutor once I've gotten more settled in life?

Thanks for any help or insight you can offer!
