    College 101: A Girl's Guide to Freshman Year is a comprehensive and authentic guide for girls to everything college. Unlike other college guides, College 101 is written from the honest, humorous, and relatable first-person perspective of a young woman who recently experienced her freshman year, while also offering the advice of experts and unique experiences of other college-aged women. This refreshing guide shows girls what to really expect from their first year of college, including pro tips and common pitfalls to avoid. From managing academics and navigating frat culture on campus, to avoiding debt and getting enough sleep, this book answers all girls' questions about university life, including those they didn't even know they had! Presented in a dynamic and varied format, College 101 imparts seriously valuable information and secrets about the freshman year that every girl needs to make sure she survives (and actually enjoys) her first college experience.

    Although College 101 is written especially for girls, young men shouldn't consider it forbidden knowledge-college is a tough enough, and costly enough, that students of both genders need all the help preparing for it that they can get! Highly recommended.,Midwest Book Review, 6/1/17
