Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

You've walked across the stage in your cap and gown, received your diploma, and hugged all the friends you'll miss next fall—and now you're off to college. But let's face it; no Orientation Week can ever fully prepare you for all the wrinkles of life in this strange new realm. How can you adjust to living with a roommate? How do you avoid gaining the much-touted Freshman Fifteen? How can you budget wisely when your new buddies are spending wildly? And how do you stay sober and still meet boys? This justly-titled Seventeen ultimate guide gives real-world answers to problems in this weird new realm.

Publishers Weekly
06/16/2014
In a book with a photo-driven, magazinelike layout, the editors of Seventeen magazine offer an array of advice for girls gearing up for college. Topics include choosing the right dorm room “vibe,” going to parties, budgeting, dating, eating, maintaining long-distance relationships, and dressing for college life (“When you oversleep—and you will—reach for fail-safe skinnies and a cozy sweater”). Quotes from actual college students on what to pack, whether to join a sorority, fashion styles to sample, and myriad other subjects should help ease freshman into these transformative years. Ages 15–up. (June)
From the Publisher

“Every high school library should buy multiple copies of this book.”
—VOYA

VOYA, October 2014 (Vol. 37, No. 4) - Rachel Axelrod
Prospective college students will love reading this guide, which does prove itself to be ultimate. The smooth graphics, colors, and cool ways the information is presented will appeal to teens who want their questions answered by those in the know—that is, college students themselves. From dating to eating, studying, romance, and drinking, this book includes it all. Short comments are interspersed with student interviews from various colleges around the country. They are honest about situations that may occur, such as drinking too much; are cautionary about how much money is needed to cover miscellaneous expenses; and include helpful hints about getting along with a first roommate. What to wear, what to eat, and where to go for fun may differ depending on location, so the longer interviews are helpful, as they note which college the person attends. The larger size of the pages, color photographs, and variations in the size, fonts, and color of the text render the book most appealing. Helpful hints about things students may not ask in a college tour or interview are all included, such as what to do about a long-distance romance, what not to put on Facebook or Instagram, how to help friends who drink too much, what sororities are all about, and much more. It is an updated guide for the twenty-first-century co-ed. Every high school library should buy multiple copies of this book. Reviewer: Rachel Axelrod; Ages 15 to 18.
