The Freshman Survival Guide: Soulful Advice for Studying, Socializing, and Everything in Between by Nora Bradbury-Haehl, Bill McGarvey

A values-based guide to navigating that critical first year of college that speaks to college students in their own language and offers practical tools that readers need to keep from drinking, sleeping or skipping their way out of college.

There are numerous guides for choosing a college, paying for college and getting good grades in college But THE FRESHMAN SURVIVAL GUIDE is the first to offer advice on academics, relationships and lifestyle and combine it with guidance on how to cope with the spiritual, emotional and ethical questions and issues that confront young adults.


Divided into five sections (Relationships, Identity &Spirituality, Academics, Risk, Balance), the book tackles issues that include: Homesickness * Learning Who You Are * Real Stats on Mental Health * 10 Reasons to Show Up to Class * Are Your Earning Your BA or Your IM * Safety: Don't Be Paranoid, Just be Smart * Doritos Is Not A Food Group * and 19 other equally pertinent areas that other college guides don't address.

This is one college guidebook that freshman won't be ashamed to read and keep in their backpacks.

Great College Advice Book I was given this book to read, as I am heading off to college in the fall, and I have to say the advice was spot on. I didn't necessarily need to read a college advice book because, all you need is common sense and the ability  to make the right decisions in college. All in all, not only was the book helpful but it was quite entertaining too! The authors also included quotes of advice from real college students which was an excellent idea because they gave wise information about being open to opportunity and how to start over building relationships with new people. I'm glad I took the time to read this book because I now feel less intimidated and more confident entering into college.!
