Toolkit for the Transition to Freshman Year
Did you know?
- 65% of college freshmen suffer from homesickness?
- 75% of students are too embarrassed to seek help for emotional issues
- 83% of college students drink
- 80% of students are interested in spirituality
Of course, as someone who works with students, you are already well aware of the challenges they face when making the transition to college life. And if you are like most of the educators and administrators we’ve worked with, you are also aware that incoming students are often unprepared for what lies ahead. As a result, despite all the resources available to them, far too many of them crash and burn. That is why we wrote The Freshman Survival Guide.
What is it?
For many of the colleges we work with, The Freshman Survival Guide is a toolkit that we customize to the needs of their institutions’ existing orientation, counseling and residence life staffs.
Now in its third printing, with 20,000 copies in print after just a year in publication, The Freshman Survival Guide has been featured in the Washington Post, Metro (New York, Philadelphia, Boston), School Library Journal and the Journal of College Student Psychotherapy.
