Editorial Reviews

Matthew Decker
This fall, Heitlinger expanded from blog posts to books with her self-published work, The Freshman 50. The book—which is available as an e-book—is composed of various anecdotes and pieces of advice for incoming college freshman told by the Carrie Bradshaw-esque big sister you never had. The lessons range from dorm life to hookups, and delve into academics with advice for coping with a challenging college curriculum.

Meet the Author

Midway through her freshman year, Carly Heitlinger realized that there were certain topics and things that weren't exactly discussed at graduation parties. Everyone tells you that you're going to have the BEST time of your life. And everyone gives their own "advice" on how to deal with roommates, most of the time by sharing their own horror stories.

She started making a list of things that she wished someone had told her before left for Georgetown. Especially being the oldest of the family and going to an out of state, smaller, private school, she felt like she knew next to nothing. Most of what she learned was from making mistakes. Lots and lots of them.

And the list kept growing. At some point, she figured that she could actually make this into a marketable book. A What to Expect When You're Expecting for college students, if you will.

Heitlinger is a coxswain for the men's heavyweight rowing team at Georgetown and writes a popular blog. She is working towards a degree in marketing and has hopes of moving to New York City to pursue a career in public relations.
