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.
Generation Z Goes to College (order directly from Amazon) was written with a focus toward higher education professionals, but should be read by parents of these students as well. As parents, we know our students intimately as individuals, but we don’t often think about the overview of the entire generation to which they belong. Generation Z Goes to College helps parents see their students in the context of their generation.
Generation Z, as defined in this book, includes those students born between 1995 and 2010. So these are the students now entering college.
