    How to college : what to know before you go (and when you're there)

    Brenner, Andrea (Andrea Malkin), author.

    "The first practical guide of its kind that helps students transition smoothly from high school to college. The transition from high school--and home--to college can be stressful. Students and parents often arrive on campus unprepared for what college is really like. Academic standards and expectations are different from high school; families aren't present to serve as 'scaffolding' for students; and first-years have to do what they call 'adulting.' Nothing in the college admissions process prepares students for these new realities. As a result, first-year college students report higher stress, more mental health issues, and lower completion rates than in the past. In fact, up to one third of first-year college students will not return for their second year--and colleges are reporting an increase in underprepared first-year students. How to College is here to help. Professors Andrea Malkin Brenner and Lara Schwartz guide first-year students and their families through the transition process, during the summer after high school graduation and throughout the school year, preparing students to succeed and thrive as they transition and adapt to college. The book draws on the authors' experience teaching, writing curriculum, and designing programs for thousands of first-year college students over decades"-- Provided by publisher.

    Where you go is not who you'll be : an antidote to the college admissions mania

    Bruni, Frank.

    Over the last few decades, Americans have turned college admissions into a terrifying and occasionally devastating process, preceded by test prep, tutors, all sorts of stratagems, all kinds of rankings, and a conviction among too many young people that their futures will be determined and their worth established by which schools say yes and which say no. That belief is wrong. It's cruel. And in this book, Frank Bruni explains why, giving students and their parents a new perspective on this brutal, deeply flawed competition and a path out of the anxiety that it provokes.

    Confessions of a scholarship winner : the secrets that helped me win $500,000 in free money for college : how you can too!

    Ellis, Kristina.

    On the first day of high school, Kristina Ellis's mom, a single, working mother who lost her husband to cancer, informed her that she could not financially support her after graduation. Kristina would need to find her own way to pay for college. As an average student with less-than-impressive test scores, Kristina realized she would have to sell herself to scholarship committees if she wanted to stand out. That's when she devised the plan that led to her receiving over $500,000 in free money for college--enough to pay for her full education at a top-20 university, all the way up to her doctoral degree, and make her dreams come true. How she made it happen--and how you can too!--is the focus of this book. Kristina shares not just her little-known secrets for scholarship success but her incredibly inspiring story -- Back cover.
