A values-based guide to navigating that critical first year of college that speaks to college students in their own language and offers practical tools that readers need to keep from drinking, sleeping or skipping their way out of college.

There are numerous guides for choosing a college, paying for college and getting good grades in college But THE FRESHMAN SURVIVAL GUIDE is the first to offer advice on academics, relationships and lifestyle and combine it with guidance on how to cope with the spiritual, emotional and ethical questions and issues that confront young adults.
Divided into five sections (Relationships, Identity &Spirituality, Academics, Risk, Balance), the book tackles issues that include: Homesickness * Learning Who You Are * Real Stats on Mental Health * 10 Reasons to Show Up to Class * Are Your Earning Your BA or Your IM * Safety: Don't Be Paranoid, Just be Smart * Doritos Is Not A Food Group * and 19 other equally pertinent areas that other college guides don't address.

This is one college guidebook that freshman won't be ashamed to read and keep in their backpacks.

Review:

The Freshman Survival Guide is a strikingly clever work from Bradbury and McGarvey in which the potentially tremulous first weeks of college life are dissected into 25 must know survival tips. From healthy relationship building to avoiding the disastrous pull of procrastination, the guide colorfully dispenses common sense and holistic development. The newest members of any college community will find in this guide a wonderful blend of down-to-earth advice and answers to the deepest of life questions. It is not afraid to address the big life questions of faith, service, the meaning of life and one's spiritual journey. I can not think of a better gift to give a son or daughter, a niece or nephew, a godchild or grandchild who is heading off to college.―Michael Galligan-Stierle, Ph.D., President, Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities

College students arrive on campus with impressive resumes and advanced academic skills. Many, however, do not have the ability to confront the profound questions of meaning, values or spirituality that will face them as they enter the adult world. This book makes an important contribution to helping college students navigate these defining moments."
Wayne L. Firestone, President, Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life
