From the Back Cover:

How do I make the absolute most of college?

What are the pitfalls and opportunities?

How do I walk away with more than just a piece of paper?

Adam Shepard pursued the American dream with only twenty-five dollars in his pocket in Scratch Beginnings. Now he turns his attention to higher education to help you make the most out of your four (or five or six) years in college.

Drawing on his visits to campuses across the country, expert advice, and his own rewarding college experience, Adam explores the most pressing concerns of today's university students and examines the many aspects (and surprises) of college living. From transitioning to a life away from home to managing on a tight budget; from the necessity of scheduling to taking your health seriously; from the subtleties of campus social life to the dos and don'ts of networking, Adam offers hope, motivation, and direction to help you sail smoothly through the best four years of your life and beyond.

About the Author:

Adam Shepard is a graduate of Merrimack College in North Andover, Massachusetts, where he served as a residential advisor during his upperclassmen years. He is the author of Scratch Beginnings: Me, $25, and the Search for the American Dream, and he lives in Raleigh, North Carolina.
