This is a scattered work, one part worldview, one part practical advice, and one part apologetics. The author begins with a description of college life, which includes telling his own story of movement away from Christianity through college, and an eventual return to the Faith many years after. He describes college as an almost alien world where children suddenly find themselves treated as almost adults (you don't have to wash your sheets or cook, but you have to wash your clothes).
In the second part, he moves into a short overview of worldviews. He describes the Christian worldview in some detail, and provides a gloss of postmodernism and "do it yourself spirituality." Budziszewski ends this section with some practical advice on influencing rather than being influenced -- a key point in every relationship throughout life.
The third part deals with what the author calls campus myths -- myths about seeking for truth, about love and sex, and about politics. The section on love and sex is the most useful, dealing with the idea that love is an emotion, and sex just the "adult expression" of that emotion openly and honestly.Read more ›
