You have spent the last year or two of your life trying to get in, and now you need to know what to do once you get there. To make the most of it, you'll need to Carpe College! By seizing all the wonderful opportunities, both inside and outside the classroom, you can make your college years the rich and life-changing experience you've always dreamed of. But you need a plan, an approach, and some perspective. From your dorm room to your classroom, Carpe College! has you covered. Whether it's planning your week, poppin' in to see your professor, or partying like you know what you're doing, with this book you'll know you have what it takes to truly seize your college experience!
So, what the heck is Carpe College!?
Well, it's certainly not a perfect Latin translation because that would mean 'Seize the College!' and inciting riots won't get any of us anywhere. So let's simply settle on a fast and loose translation: 'Seize the college experience (in its entirety).'
Carpe College! is an idea. An approach. An M.O. A habit. A way of embracing everything college life throws your way - academics and the rest - and doing so with vigor. Or, as President Kennedy would have said, "with VIGAH!" It's also an exploration, a continual experiment, a series of tests and trials and the dipping of many toes into many different waters in an attempt to uncover who you are and how you fit... with others... with the world at large... with your own notion of who you'd like to become.
This is Carpe College!
Let us begin.

I heard about this book from a friend in NY. I planned to buy a bunch for Christmas gifts for my cousin's kids and graduation gifts for all my sons friends who are graduating this spring. It's the perfect gift for them. Why can't I buy it here? My friend said it was for sale here. I guess I'll try Amazon...
Very informative book that will help students and parents alike. Easy read and I found it simple to understand. The information covers everything a student who will be starting college would want to know also this book can prep high school students, do's & don't. I wish I had this book to guide me through the trials and tribulation of college. Excellent read. Won this book on Goodreads, First Read Giveaway. Thank you, Darlene Cruz
Carpe College! is essential reading for high school juniors, seniors, college freshmen and friends and family who want to help them succeed. The contents help understand how to navigate a strange new world, get the most value from the experience and enjoy the process. The author tackles aspects most counselors forget to address such as: how to deal with roommate issues; build relationships with instructors; explore cultural offerings; address peer pressure; budget time; and more. If you’re thinking about life beyond high school, going through the application process, already admitted, paying student loans or helping someone you love (or like a lot) go through this exciting phase of life, remember two essential words: Carpe College!
As a high school counselor, this book is a must for college-bound students. The transition from high school to college is a difficult one. Most students are prepared academically, but managing time, peer pressure and their new-found freedom is difficult. This book will hook the student with an easy-to-read style and great sense of humor. Once hooked, the content will make sense. I highly recommend this book, and wish I had had something like this when I started college! Great graduation gift idea too!!
I found it on Amazon. Amazon says 3-5 weeks for delivery but it's wrong. It was delivered in days. Great book! Stuff every kid going to college [and in college] should know. A terrific graduation gift!
