From time to time, we like to review some of the books available for parents of college students. There is a wealth of literature available to help parents cope with the transition to college and the changes that occur throughout the college years. We’ve offered some lists of recommended reading, and there is something for everyone. Visit our Resources page for suggestions of important books for college parents and their students.
How to Survive Your Freshman Year is a book of many voices, and that is the point. The creators and editors have collected information, tips, and stories from hundreds of college students about how to make the most of your time in college. The book is full of solid advice, humor, and contradictions. Every student follows a different path through college and so the advice they share may not be the same. One student advises that you never miss a class while another student suggests that it’s not important to attend.
