    This book is worth buying!!!

    Keith Anderson obviously has a depth of understanding college students and the issues that they face. This book gives important advice to college students in a wide variety of situations that they may face during the first few years of college. I love this book and highly recommend it for students and even parents to read!! It would make a great graduation gift or for anyone about to embark on the college journey, whether at a Christian college or not!!
