An Insider's Guide to Surviving Freshman Year.
Garni, Kenneth, Comp.
This brochure offers students tips for successfully completing the freshman year at college, and is particularly aimed at helping the student reader to anticipate the situations and problems likely to arise during the first weeks and months at school. The suggestions are grouped by month and each monthly section also includes at least one reminder regarding things such as deadlines for course changes or aid application. The suggestions focus primarily on ensuring academic success and cover time management, study habits, managing final exams, becoming socially involved, and knowing when to go for assistance. Also included are comments on social life designed to show how to balance social and academic activities. Other suggestions to aid students in negotiating the administration of college life include registering early in order to secure the courses needed, and using assigned academic advisors to navigate the course selection process.
