A couple of years ago I did a five post series called, College, Ready or Not?, that focused on finances, making friends, going Greek, stress management, and the importance of listening to your instincts in the collegiate environment. This was great foreshadowing for the opportunity I had to contribute to The Freshman Project: A Collection of Practical and Clever Advice About The College Experience. This book is for college students diving into their first-year of college AND for those people in their life who serve as their advocates, allies, mentors, friends, teachers, guidance counselors, mentors, and champions.
After serving as a Student Affairs staff member on the campuses of Duke University and Vanderbilt University for the past 9 years, I know that parents/guardians always want to know, “How do I prepare my student for college?” This book can help you answer that question with pages of expert knowledge that help you have the conversations that matter most with your student.
Gift this book to a student and they can spend some time preparing for their next incredible chapter.
- Survive Failure
- Build Healthy Love Relationships
- Pick a Major
- Be a Beginner
- Navigate Depression and Anxiety
- Discover Leadership Opportunities
- Honor the Differences
- Sleep Smart
- Consider Fraternity/Sorority Life
All of these topics are critical for an incoming college student to discuss with a caring individual in their life AND there are still many more topics in the book. Providing them with this information will provide a strong foundation that will help support them as they navigate their first-year of college.
I’m honored to have a chapter in the book “Discover Leadership Opportunities”. Erin Fischer of The Leadership and Training Studio put together an all-star roster of expert contributors who give you top notch nuggets of wisdom.
If you’re a student or a supporter of a student and you want deeper insight into the collegiate experience while adding some tools to your toolbox to help you both be successful, then this book is for you.
