Dean's List: Eleven Habits of Highly Successful College Students
Bader, John B.
Johns Hopkins University Press
With a solid GPA, numerous extracurricular achievements, and an acceptance letter from an excellent college, it seems that all of your hard work in school has paid off. Now what? What can you expect from college life, and how can you get the most out of it? This book answers these questions to help you excel in college. Deans at America's top institutions tell you what you need to know to have a rich and rewarding college experience. Armed with an insider's perspective, you will develop habits critical for college success, including: (1) Focusing on learning, not on grades; (2) Building an adult relationship with your parents; (3) Working the system by understanding the system; (4) Learning from diversity at home and abroad; (5) Coping with failure; and (6) Planning boldly for life after college. "Dean's List" offers a thoughtful, common-sense approach to higher education that allows every student to achieve. Many books will tell you how to get an "A" in class, but this book encourages you to do more--to explore college life, embrace new challenges, and become independent. Includes expert advice from deans at top U.S. colleges: Barnard College, Brown University, Bryn Mawr College, Columbia University, Cornell University, Dartmouth College, Duke University, Georgetown University, Harvard University, The Johns Hopkins University, Mount Holyoke College, Northwestern University, Oberlin College, Pomona College, Princeton University, Rice University, Smith College, Stanford University, University of Pennsylvania, University of Rochester, Wellesley College, and Yale University.
