As a Student Support Services program at a two-year college, we have found the College Transition Publishing products the best resources for providing useful information for our students. These publications are easy to read, provide extremely useful information in a concise and informative style. We generally give out Life During College to our freshmen. This book covers everything a freshman should know from the day they first step and into their college career. It is a great for teaching a freshmen what they should know as a student — from study skills, getting along with roommates, advisement, enrolling in classes, how to get along with professors — this book has it all!

I just wanted to let you know how much your books helped make our workshop for students at Bowie State University such a great success. Initially, we had planned to provide the workshop just for our seniors to help prepare them with life skills for the real world. As we began to work with our student leaders in the planning of the workshop, we discovered that many under classmen were also interested in attending the workshop. We opened the workshop to all students, and they came. We have now been invited by our Housing Staff to present the “Life During College” Workshop for our freshmen class. The students particularly enjoyed all of the vast topics that both books cover, especially the information provided about banking, budgeting, credit cards and credit reports. Most of all they were pleased that they were given their own copy to keep for their own future reference.

Life During College provides an excellent list of all the practical advice possible for a student heading off to college. From getting good grades through balancing a checkbook, this roadmap through the difficult terrain of being a young student is thorough and detailed. I recommend it highly for graduating high school seniors.
