Written and edited by current college students and recent graduates, each book in this series of student guides focuses on a particular topic of interest to high school or college students and includes helpful advice and effective strategies for tackling that particular task. Encouraging and informative quotes and personal essays from students, as well as suggestions from teachers, professors, and advisors, accompany the content of the guide. This guide offers peer encouragement for students transitioning from the familiar halls of a public high school to the often intimidating spires of a top university. Students who excelled in this new academic setting offer specific advice, including how to deal with initial shocks and impressions; how to prepare for the new academic challenges and succeed in overcoming them; what to expect from the social scene and how to navigate it; how to finance an often expensive top university education; and what to expect from classmates coming from private schools.
