When you're feeling icky, there's nothing better than a bowl of chicken soup. Unfortunately, as every college student knows, that stuff doesn't microwave easily, so we have to make do with cheaper or simpler alternatives - things that won't get slimy or too greasy after being heated in a microwave. A simple alternative and great gift is the Chicken Soup books, particularly Chicken Soup for the Soul: Campus Chronicles. The book, like all of the Chicken Soup series, is filled with personal stories about life. This book, specifically, is about the many aspects of campus life. From choosing majors to finding love to studying abroad, it's all here. Reading such stories is so refreshing for me, knowing that someone else has been through what I'm going through. College is a very confusing time and a lot of students these days don't or aren't encouraged to share their stories. They don't tell what they went through to change majors or what they want to do with their degrees or how hard they worked to get this scholarship and that loan, how they felt upon getting accepted to college. Here, I can finally hear some of those stories told by the people who lived them. College can be a scary, confusing place, even as an upperclassman or grad student. The same questions seem to keep sprouting up. The one I've heard the most is "what are you going to do after college?" Chicken Soup for the Soul: Campus Chronicles provides several examples of people answering that question themselves and prove that that answer can be found anywhere. It also answers other questions like "where can I go to make friends on campus?" "how would/did study abroad change my life?" "what did I learn from living in a dorm room?" "how can I juggle a full class-load and a job and/or a relationship?" and "how did I get over heartbreak/disaster striking in the middle of the semester?" The various authors tell their stories well and the organization of the book make it easy to navigate if you want to read about a certain subject. All in all, Campus Chronicles gets a 100%
