Editorial Reviews

David Porter
Victor Cahn brings to his subject the same qualities that have for the last thirty years made him a legendary teacher at Skidmore College: profound knowledge, acute understanding, a lively sense of humor, and a contagious passion for his subject. His book is a gold mine of information on the full spectrum of college life.
Susan Jackson Rodgers
Cahn is the avuncular guide we all wish we’d had to help navigate our undergraduate experience. From how to approach professors during office hours to cultivating good study habits and beyond, Cahn offers invaluable, practical advice. A must-read for incoming freshmen—and their parents.
Christine Vitrano
No student should attend college without first reading this book, which is an invaluable resource for those looking to make the most of their experience. The book should also be read by all teachers in higher education, who may have forgotten the myriad challenges facing students as they make the difficult transition to college.
