"College-bound and free! On my own!"
Those of us who've experienced college life understand the excitement, but we also shudder to think about the challenges and temptations overconfident freshmen will face. Help the students you know realize that God follows them to college.
The authors have mined their years of experience as campus chaplains to produce this companion for young adults trying to make sense of life, college, and vocational choices. Their reflections will help students recognize the need for grounding in God through prayer and spiritual practices throughout the college years.
This small book contains 42 reality-based and Christ-centered essays divided by topical sections:
* Being a Student: God's Call and Vision for You * Living Your Faith Each Day: Some Essentials * Faithful Relationships: Keeping God at the Center * Somewhere Between Crisis and Opportunity: Life in the Wider World
These short meditations fit easily into a busy schedule and work as a guide for prayer and reflection, personal devotion, or group study. God Goes to College is a handy book - in size and price - making it a perfect graduation gift or an item to send in a college care package.

Review:

Why? It's simple. God goes to college because that's where you are...

Use this book to deepen your spiritual life. Use it as a guide for prayer and reflection that will support you in your growth as a Christian and as a student. Use it for your personal devotional time or use it with a study group. Read and enjoy; take some time to reflect on what you've read; then, take time to listen -- to God and to yourself. In the process, you just might find courage, grace, compassion and strength you didn't know you had. And remember: God does go to college -- right alongside you, every step of the way.
