Students work hard to get into college, but once on campus, few know what to expect...
According to the latest research, over one-third of first year college students report getting homesick; more than 40 percent report being too afraid to approach their professors; and just over 60 percent report experiencing some sort of depression (the percentage increases by junior year). Combine these with the reality that about 1 in 4 students do not return to the same campus their sophomore year and it's clear -- the first year isn't easy.
Twice a freshman (once at the University of Wisconsin Madison, and then at Indiana University), I know exactly what it's like to be in an unfamiliar place, surrounded by unfamiliar people, feeling unfamiliar feelings. It’s these feelings and my own experience that motivated me to write and research what I believe is the most complete book on college life ever presented!
I asked over 1,000 students from over 100 college campuses the question, "If you could go back in time and give freshman you a tip, what would you tell you, and why?" The results are over 400 pages of stories, advice, facts, stats, and invaluable information. The Naked Roommate also includes questions and answers as published in my nationally syndicated Help Me, Harlan! advice column. This is the book I wish someone had given to me and I’m so proud of it -- enjoy the nakedness!About the Author:
