Our friends at Uloop have a great offer for prospective college students: a free eBook called Student to Student, which consists of articles from actual students on college life, featuring topics on everything from moving in to whether to attend graduate school.
What makes this different from other books? It doesn’t have just one particular opinion, from a single professor, psychologist, or author offering “professional” advice. The book turns the tables and puts actual students in the spotlight, many of which who were still in college while contributing to this book.
On making your new college town your home:
“Don’t know where to start on your exploration? Take a tour. [. . .] Round up some friends and decide on a mode of transportation (which, depending on how far you’d like to wander, could range from a car to a bicycle to some comfy tennis shoes).” – J.E. Hillenberg, University of Alabama at Birmingham
Focusing on a “profession” versus a “passion” as a major:
“As you look for what you’d like to choose in a major, don’t settle for something simply because you could see yourself doing it, or you think you’d make bank doing it.” – Aaron Johnson, University of North Texas
Ways to get motivated to fight the Freshman 15—or even Senior 30:
“Think of [Instagram] as picture blogs about inspiring others to get healthy. They are open to anyone who has an Instagram account and really do inspire.” – Tayler LaBellarte, DePaul University
Available scholarship programs:
“Google offers scholarships designed to encourage women and minorities to study computer science.” - Jenn Pedde, University of Southern California
Student to Student is very helpful and easy read, a wonderful companion to your college search process.
