Description
 

The challenges of college just got a lot easier with The First-Year College Experience Handbook.

With over thirty years of combined curricular and co-curricular advising experience, authors t. leon williams and melissa n. jordan lend their expert knowledge to a whole new generation of college students.

With the goal of helping students make the best choices possible for their academic, personal, and professional future, williams and jordan outline four main areas that college freshmen need to nurture.

These include relationships, specifically with other students, faculty, and alumni, which are the building blocks of a strong support network for obstacles that are bound to pop up along the way; academic preparation, which often comes as a shock to those just coming out of high school; reflection, both academic and social, which encourages students to track their individual progress; and transformational knowledge, which is based upon students own unique experiences.

All of these points and more are tackled with wisdom and compassion in The First-Year College Experience Handbook. Readers will discover the importance of participating in quality co-curricular activities, as well as discover tips and tricks of the trade to make their college experience the best, and most rewarding, that it can be.
