    A values-based guide to navigating that critical first year of college that speaks to college students in their own language and offers practical tools that readers need to keep from drinking, sleeping or skipping their way out of college.

    There are numerous guides for choosing a college, paying for college and getting good grades in college But THE FRESHMAN SURVIVAL GUIDE is the first to offer advice on academics, relationships and lifestyle and combine it with guidance on how to cope with the spiritual, emotional and ethical questions and issues that confront young adults.


    Divided into five sections (Relationships, Identity &Spirituality, Academics, Risk, Balance), the book tackles issues that include: Homesickness * Learning Who You Are * Real Stats on Mental Health * 10 Reasons to Show Up to Class * Are Your Earning Your BA or Your IM * Safety: Don't Be Paranoid, Just be Smart * Doritos Is Not A Food Group * and 19 other equally pertinent areas that other college guides don't address.

    This is one college guidebook that freshman won't be ashamed to read and keep in their backpacks.
