I recommend that anyone who has some one entering college for the firs time this coming fall get this book for them. I got it as a gift before college and it really help me make the transition from Highschool to college
I had the opportunity to get this book for a highly discounted price for my Kindle, and I couldn't resist. Like all the 'Chicken Soup' series books, it's a mix of material, that varies widely in quality. Some of it is sad, some is inspiring, and some you want to reread again and again. On the reverse, a few of the included stories are rather dumb. But, overall, it's a great book that covers a variety of college scenarios, and will help give you the courage needed to face the frightening new adventure that is college, and manages to give a few helpful tips and pieces of advice at the same time.

I am a College Administrator, and work with students on a daily basis. My work at times can be very draining, and burnout levels are high. It's the human interactions that make my work worthwhile, and these stories are perfect examples of why I continue to do it. I LOVE this book...I'm only swapping it because I have an extra copy!
