And they provide sage advice as well.
Nancy L. Fruge
This book is a must read for every girl graduating from high school and any young woman currently in college.

Sometimes when you read a guidebook you expect a lot of superficial, common sense advice.

I picked up this book as a gift, but I ended up reading it myself before passing it on to the intended recipient. ---
I wish I had this book when starting college. Sometimes when you read a guidebook you expect a lot of superficial, common sense advice. This book goes beyond that - it is superbly written, and the advice is intelligent and thoughtful. It does a great job of addressing issues specifically from a girl's point of view, especially in the dating, health and sorority sections. I think the book gives an accurate picture of what it's like to be a girl in college today. Definitely worth checking out.

Format: Paperback
It has *some* helpful hints, but I felt that most come from common sense; eat healthy and exercise in order to be fit. Duh?

The writers introduce lots of good topics for advice and discussion, but hardly touch upon them, at least not to the extent that would be truly helpful or likely to be remembered, in my opinion. Of course, for further discussion, as the book reiterates, you can always go to their website to talk to other soon-to-be college students if you have any questions.

Somewhere in the book it says that this guide can be helpful to keep during all four (or more) years of college. I imagine that I'll get more help from actually talking to people for more in-depth help if I need it. All of this is just a basic outline of what to possibly expect in college; meeting new people, joining a club, knowing when to not leave your BFF plastered in some random person's bathroom by herself. You know, all that stuff you couldn't figure out on your own.

On the not so harsh side, it's probably worth a couple of reads, but, for me, it wasn't worth the price. I advised my friend not to buy it herself so that she can just borrow my copy. I advise the same to everyone else - check the library first.

I purchased this for my younger sister. She was more than impressed with everything in it. She loved that it offered up a variety of suggestions and options that she would have never thought of.
It is geared towards college freshman, if you get this as a sophomore or later you have already learned the tricks of the trade the hard way.

Format: Paperback
This is a fantastic book for any woman preparing for or already in college. The advice comes straight from the girls that are there as opposed to "experts" that may be removed from the day-to-day college lifestyle. It provides helpful advice and real-life stories about adjusting to the college experience, from dealing with roommates, to making one's own schedules, to the myriad of social activities available on campus. I highly recommend this book and enjoyed reading even as a recent college grad. I wish it was available when I was about to start school.

Every young woman about to enter college needs to get this book. The advice is extremely honest and frank. There are also a ton of fun, fast facts sprinkled throughout and the book is organized into chapters that cover all aspects of college life. The pieces come directly from women in college and I'm quite impressed by the quality of their writing. Definitely a great read and makes an awesome gift for those off to college or those who just got into college!

Format: Paperback
University Chic was a great read. When I graduated from college I remember receiving a college survival guide but found it to be not very helpful. University Chic really makes each "experience" real and brings up topics that most books gloss over. A must read for anyone who is getting ready for college or for anyone who would like to relive college!

This book covered a range of topics. Not just girly info. Would highly recommend. There is a variety of writers with their own experiences - keeping it real!
