College 101: A Girl’s Guide to Freshman Year

We rated this book:


As I’m headed off to college in a few years, I figured College 101: A Girl’s Guide to Freshman Year would be a wealth of knowledge, and it was. Be forewarned that the author uses a lot of stereotyping and gender bashing, which at times made the book appalling to read. Just because someone prefers to be a homebody doesn’t mean they’re shy, depressed, or can’t handle social situations. It’s a poor assumption on her part and is just one of many examples. Overall, the book has valuable information pertaining to the varying aspects of college that you are rarely told about, like what to bring to your dorm, time management, having shower shoes, as well as offers advice on how to deal with situations like conflicting roommates, and finding time for old friends. She also goes into the practical details of college debt and the best ways to avoid it, a vital topic as the cost of college continues to skyrocket with each new year. If you or someone you know is graduating high school soon, this book would make a great gift that will be used many times.
