"While the primary audience for this book appears to be the University faculty and administrators looking for a better way to engage students, the author ameliorates the proverbial "beef" between Hip-Hop and academe by offering a student-centered model for understanding Hip-Hop in college life." ― Rob Jackson, Words, Beat, and Life: The Global Journal of Hip Hop Culture
"Petchauer draws upon hiphop as an authoritative source to demonstrate the variety of ways hiphop collegians apply it to their classroom practices and educational lives. This particular strength broadens the reading audience from university personnel and faculty to include readers interested in art, education, and hiphop studies." ― Haidee Smith Lefebvre, International Journal of Critical Pedagogy
"In Hip-Hop Culture in College Students’ Lives: Elements, Embodiment and Higher Edutainment, Petchauer presented a detailed exploration of the diverse experiences of students he referred to as hip-hop collegians. Petchauer delivered on his promise―Hip-Hop Culture in College Students’ Lives is a well-constructed lens through which to better understand a diverse group of students on college campuses and is a valuable read for anyone in higher education looking to gain further knowledge of this growing group of students. In this way, Hip-Hop Culture in College Students’ Lives is a valuable read both for professionals seeking to work with hip-hop collegians as well as anyone striving to interact with students around their passions to create more robust and engaging college environments." ― Christopher Toutain, Willamette University, Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice
"Petchauer’s book offers important insights into how hip-hop collegians experience life on and off campus, and how it influences education. His carefully constructed interviews and deep personal knowledge of hip-hop culture enable him to write a thought-provoking must-read for campus personnel directly involved with shaping how higher education influences student life and learning." ― Margaret A. Swanson, Education Review
"Hip-Hop Culture in College Students’ Lives encourages new critical thought and analysis among educators, campus personnel and researchers regarding the value of hip-hop culture in enhancing college students’ learning and development. Unveiled through an artistic approach to inquiry, a portrait is presented of how students who create hip-hop integrate its ideology, aesthetics and practices into their college lives." ― Journal of College Student Development
"Petchauer’s work not only validates the spaces created by students on all of our campuses, but should in fact challenge faculty, staff, and administrators to find new and creative ways to engage students. This is a fascinating study which should hopefully provide a more sophisticated understanding of how students make meaning on campus." ― From the foreword by Walter M. Kimbrough, Ph.D., President of Philander Smith College
"This book is a passionate, timely, and deep-rooted analysis of hip-hop culture’s value to higher education. Petchauer’s prescriptions for integrating hip-hop into pedagogical practice are practical, culturally astute, and ultimately revolutionary." ― Joseph Schloss, Adjunct Assistant Professor of Black and Latino Studies, Baruch College
"This book is an important intervention in contemporary debates on hip-hop and education. Petchauer shows us how campuses have been radically transformed through hip-hop in ways often invisible to educators and administrators alike, and he has begun a new and fruitful discussion for the field of hip-hop studies as well as education more broadly. This is a vital and necessary book." ― Greg Dimitriadis, Professor of Educational Leadership and Policy, University at Buffalo, SUNY
