When you arrive on a college campus, spread out in front of you are literally thousands of new things to learn. For most students, it takes months to discover how to successfully navigate this new environment. Nine months, in fact, September to May: your first year in college.
Now you can have the answers that all first-year students wish they had from the beginning. And you can have them in about an hour.
The information in this book was gathered from scholars and students at colleges across the nation: two-year, four-year, private, public, large, and small. Aspects from each are tied together with the common theme every first-year student expressed: they needed help. We’re going to help by telling you the story of Jake, a first-year student at T.H.E. University. He is about to experience many of the obstacles first-year students encounter.
Your first year will be full of challenges, questions, and opportunities. In an hour or so, you’ll be better prepared.
“The Skinny on Your First Year In College should be required reading for all first-year students. Many students stumble upon my office confused, lost or just plain frustrated. I wish I had a copy of this practical guide to give them all. It’s easy to follow, upbeat, positive and will empower the students that read it to make the right choices.”
- Deborah Mohlenhoff, Director of Activities, Tompkins Cortland Community College
