Synopsis: Introducing the essentials concepts of college success and complimenting them with short readings, the goal of this book is to offer the student the opportunity to evaluate information, think critically and engage in thoughtful debate about the combination of text/readings. Using the best selling and well-respected material of Gardner/Jewler, the authors have pared down the essential material and core concepts. One or two short readings and numerous discussion questions complete each short chapter.

About the Author: John N. Gardner brings unparalleled experience to this writing partnership for American higher education's authoritative text for first-year seminar courses. He is the recipient of his institution's highest award for teaching excellence. He has 25 years of experience directing and teaching in the most respected and widely emulated first-year seminar in the U.S., the University 101 course at the University of South Carolina. Gardner is universally recognized as one of the country's leading higher educators for his role in initiating and orchestrating an international reform movement to improve the beginning college experience, a concept he coined as "the first-year experience." He is the founding executive director of two very influential higher education centers which support campuses in their efforts to improve the learning and retention of beginning college students: the National Resource Center for The First-Year Experience and Students in Transition at the University of South Carolina (www.sc.edu/fye), and the Policy Center on the First Year of College in Brevard, N.C. (www.fyfoundations.org). The experiential basis for all of his work is his own miserable first year of college on academic probation, an experience he hopes to prevent for many of this book's readers.

Jerome Jewler is a best-selling author, educator, and friend to students. A distinguished professor emeritus of the College of Mass Communications and Information Studies as well as codirector of the University 101 first-year seminar at the University of South Carolina, Columbia, Jewler has guided advertising students through the creative and writing processes and has helped hundreds of new students determine their goals. As University 101 codirector, he planned and conducted training workshops for first-year seminar instructors, won a Mortar Board award for teaching excellence, and was recognized as USC advisor of the year and as the Distinguished Advertising Educator nationally in 2000.
