Publisher's Summary

"The best thing about college is having the privilege to be yourself and fashion out your natural potentials."

In Tips for #CollegeLife, author Bukky Ekine-Ogunlana draws on over a decade helping teenagers and their parents, and her own experience as a college freshman, to offer valuable college advice to incoming freshman that will ensure that you will be comfortable and successful when you make the important transition to university life.

In this helpful college guide, college students are provided with experience-based tips that can be applied at any college campus around the world to make your life-changing transition easier:

  • College preparation - what you should do the summer before you leave home
  • Budgeting and time management for college freshmen and sophomores
  • How to choose college classes to maximize GPA and reduce stress
  • Tips for college parents - how to help your daughter or son be successful
  • How to get along with your college roommate and be comfortable in your college dormitory or apartment
  • Navigating your college campus with confidence - how to feel like you belong
  • Developing better study habits and improving college exam scores
  • How to set priorities, so you can have fun at college and still excel in your classes

The effort that you put into your college experience is what you will get out of it. If you want to be successful, you need to mature quickly and get focused on your college classes, as soon as possible. You can fit lots of fun into your college schedule, provided you keep your priorities straight.

Very Informative

This book is very informative. It covered all the important aspects of leaving home and having a good start at College. I have been in the process in the past year of going to college and have been looking for some guidance on what to do and expect. I saw this audiobook and have not stopped listening! It gives great ideas, tips & hints of what to expect and do when you go to college. I can safely say it is that good a book that it has been the first book I have listened fully to in years, it kept me intrigued every step of the way and is superbly read out.
I would recommend this to any body! (Especially young people going to college)!
It is worth hearing.

A good guide on dealing with college life.

This book was good because it covers a range of topics about College Life for students such as freshers, money , safety, study, friends, finding a place to stay, jobs, balancing nightlife, coping with study and schedules and much more.

I like the chapter on the top 5 problems students face and how to overcome them.

I would recommend this book to students planning to go to college or university in the near future as it will help you a lot.
