Overview

Some clichés may indeed be true. HOW TO SURVIVE YOUR FRESHMAN YEAR proves that in fact "Hundreds of Heads are Better Than One."

The start of a college freshman year can bring on stomachaches, teeth grinding, parental feuds and sweaty palms. But knowing what to expect can relieve the nervousness and anxiety attacks, especially if you are being helped along by hundreds of survivors.

Hundreds of Heads Books' HOW TO SURVIVE YOUR FRESHMAN YEAR contains sage advice, clever tips, and riveting stories from Hundreds of college Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors culled from interviews at more than 100 colleges.

The hundreds of college students get down and dirty about the realities of freshman year - the best parts, the worst parts, and the unforeseen. The students interviewed are from big schools, small schools, Ivies, and state universities all across the country--greeks, geeks and jocks; men and women. What they told about their college experiences - whether satisfied, relieved or regretful - is remarkably universal.

HOW TO SURVIVE YOUR FRESHMAN YEAR provides 800 personal stories and advice tidbits from hundreds of college Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors who survived freshman year. It even contains a few tips on things to avoid, from a handful of dropouts who didn't quite make it.

This easy to read (or browse) guide covers a multitude of subjects, from where to live, how to deal with roommates, best study habits, money issues, fashion concerns, hooking up, and studying abroad, to how to spend your free time, - and, yes, the bane of everyone's existence - laundry.

HOW TO SURVIVE YOUR FRESHMAN YEAR is THE book to buy before making the plunge into your new life or the gift to give to your favorite graduating high school senior before he or she packs off to college. The book is chock full of real-world insights from hundreds of college students who have 'been there, done that' - and lived to share their wisdom. This is a "Must Read" for every College Freshman. It is a perfect high school graduation gift.

Author Bios:

HOW TO SURVIVE YOUR FRESHMAN YEAR contains the wit and wisdom of hundreds of current and former college students. The "Hundreds of Heads" share their insights and advice about surviving the always-challenging first year of college and give their readers comfort and confidence, by assuring prospective freshmen that they are not alone in their anxiety about these new experiences.

The publisher's intrepid interviewers crisscrossed the country and spoke with students and graduates from big schools, small schools, Ivies, and state universities; Greeks, geeks and jocks; men and women. They uncovered, many opinions on what to do - and what NOT to do - to make college more enjoyable, rewarding, fun, and successful.

The students were interviewed on college campuses from the east coast to the west coast by a team of Hundreds of Heads "headhunters," recent college graduates who vividly remembered their campus lives and instinctively understood what to ask. The answers provide a comfort zone in an otherwise desert, confronting head-on how to cope, how to adapt, how to make choices.

Mark Bernstein and Yadin Kaufmann have edited the guide.

Mr. Bernstein, a native of Knoxville, Tennessee, is a graduate of the Wharton School of Business of the University of Pennsylvania and New York University's School of Law. He was an attorney with the King & Spalding law firm in Atlanta, served as senior legal counsel at Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. and was a senior vice president of CNN and general manager of CNN's digital content division, CNN Interactive, prior to starting this publishing venture.

Mr. Kaufmann is a venture capitalist, and is a founding partner of Veritas Venture Partners, co-founder of MainXchange Ltd., an Internet company that delivered financial and business content to the teen market, and founder of Tmura, a not-for-profit Public Service Venture Fund. He received his B.A. from Princeton University, M.B.A. from Harvard University, and J.D. from Harvard Law School, where he was an editor of the Harvard Law Review. He is a member of both the New York and Israel bar associations.

    Don't leave for college without this book!

    Sending your child off to college is hard enough, but this book has made the transition much easier for my son (and me!). I wish that this valuable and sensible information was available to me when I went to college. An easy read, this book addresses almost everything you need to know to survive your freshman year.

    A Disappointing Read

    I bought this book in anticipation of my departure for college. My first impression was that the creators of this book just put anything written by a college student in this book. Most of the advice is weak and lacking any real substance. The only reason I kept reading was because I thought maybe I'd stumble upon something useful - and I never found it.

    An awesome book for all incoming freshmen

    This book includes great, honest insight. It's perfect for every incoming freshman who is even the least bit apprehensive to start college. I wish I had read it last year when I was a high school senior... I'd have been a lot more prepared! (Great grad gift idea)!

    Couldn't Put it Down

    When I was given this book as a graduation gift I really didn't pay much attention. Then one evening I picked up the book and couldn't put it down. It is a compilation of great tips and advice. Unlike a book of long chapters and one authors sage recollections this book is much more readable and fun because it has the wisdom of hundreds of people. Its quick. Its funny. And it did much to make me feel more prepared for next year. I've lent my copy to friends and they too couldn't put it down.

    My son loved this book

    My son is about to go off to college and got this book from a friend. I saw him read it - he kept chuckling, saying 'wow', and really had fun with it. He told me some of the stories in it and seemed to really be learning what college was going to be like. I can highly recommend this for any high schooler going off to college.
