Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Gr. 10-12. There's lots of good advice in the pages of this guide, written and edited by college students and recent graduates and broken up into short chapters. Pulled quotes, sidebars, and bulleted lists will also help the new frosh. It's all very positive and upbeat, verging at times on the preachy. And even though this is written by young people, the book seems to be a little behind the times: concern about loud music in the era of the iPod and dorm phone use in the age of the cell? Leaving home, doing laundry, forming good study habits, finding friends, and seeking help are all dealt with efficiently, if not comprehensively. Another useful title in this series is Getting through College without Going Broke: A Crash Course on Finding Money for College and Making It Last . GraceAnne DeCandido

Format: Paperback
I think this book "hit it out of the park" when it comes to giving it's readers a ton of information about the freshman year experience. The author's had an insiders perspective as students in the midst of it and do a great job recounting their experiences and drawing from those experiences practical applications for all.

The freshman year in college is a big deal, a HUGE deal ... it is a transition that few parents and students are prepared for -- what I refer to as "The Perfect Storm". After working on campus in Student Life for many years I have seen how difficult this transition is first-hand. The Department of Education has shown that more that 1/3 of all new freshman will drop out before making it to their sophomore year and fewer than half of all new freshman will graduate from college.

"Navigating Your Freshman Year" gives us some great "real-life" advice on how to weather the storm known as the Freshman Year in college!

My mom got this book for me, so of course, I ignored it for a while. But then I actually picked it up and thought it was really helpful - some points the student authors make I didn't think about and I think will help me act like less of a dork when I am off to college in the fall.

Finally, someone wrote a book about freshman year of college that is worth reading. It really covers all angles from academics to partying to roommates, etc. But what really works are all the quotes and stories by actual students mixed in. Every high school senior should read this.

I gave this to my niece for her high school graduation. She'll be attending a very large competitive university in the fall and I thought she could probably use some advice. I liked this one because it's written by students. I wish I'd had a book like this when I was a freshman.

My sister in law reports that the book is being carried everywhere, even to Orientation Weekend. Since my niece is not exactly a bookworm, I think that speaks to its value, relevance and credibility.

I bought this book for my college-bound son. He enjoyed it and said it provided helpful information on adjusting to college life and being out on his own. Purchased a second copy for a friend of his also attending college.

This was a gift to my younger niece on the occasion of her approaching freshman year. She reports that it helped, and judging from her better-than-average adjustment to university life, I am inclined to think that it's a good investment. On the other hand, she is a rather amazing prodigy in things academic, so some of it may be the student in question. I looked at a copy before I sent it. My conclusion was that it compared well with other freshman-advice books, some of which were perhaps a bit too handy with the ultra-personal advice on such hazards as problem roommates and moving in with one's significant other. Prospective students will have their own, highly idiosyncratic adjustments to make on the personal-life level, and generic suggestions that won't fit everyone seem like a waste of space. Freshmen may need to know that such difficulties are out there waiting for them, but first they need to pass the hurdles of academia and orientation!

This was a gift for my granddaughter before starting to college - she said it was most helpful in helping her to get ready to navigate the ends and outs of college life.
