“This comprehensive guide will help students and parents navigate the full college experience, so they can take advantage of all that it has to offer from day one. I highly recommend it.”
—GORDON GEE, PRESIDENT OF OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY
“Amid the glut of guidebooks about selecting and getting into college, very few have talked about what to do once you get there. This witty, wise, and down-to-earth guide admirably fills that gap. It is a wonderful resource for students and their parents.”
—ELIZABETH KISS, PRESIDENT OF AGNES SCOTT COLLEGE
“A refreshing, smart, and useful guide to college that should be basic required reading for incoming freshmen everywhere.”

About the Author
Sue Wasiolek (more commonly known as Dean Sue) is assistant vice president for student affairs and dean of students at Duke University. She was premed at Duke (she never got into medical school), completed a Master’s of Health Administration at Duke (only worked in health care for eighteen months), completed her JD at North Carolina Central University and her LLM at Duke (only practiced law for nine months), and has been working at Duke for the past twenty-eight years. Sue loves the classroom both as a teacher (she teaches edu-cation law) and as a student (she plans to complete her EdD in 2008). Sue encourages students to study what they love and base their careers around what they love, even if those two are totally different things. Her time with students is not a job but a way of life. In her free time, Sue can be found jogging around Durham or working out at the gym with students.
Anne Crossman studied at both Stanford and Duke, earning a BA in English and a Certificate in Education. After teaching for public high schools, colleges, and the military for five years, she gave up her day job to pursue authorship and motherhood. A poet by trade, her work has been published in journals such as Nimrod and Margie, and she is currently finalizing a book of poems about Alzheimer’s disease entitled Trying to Remember, which is due to be published the summer of 2008. Her third book, a humorous educational series addressing life as a high-school student, is on deck and, if all goes well, will be hitting shelves by the end of the decade. Anne currently lives with her husband and sons in Seattle, Washington.
