These days college is not a luxury but a necessity. With four (or more) long years of college life ahead of them, it's essential that students have some help to make the most of their time. This book explains how, featuring peers who talk directly and personally to students. Here, hundreds of successful college grads explain how to get top grades, find the right major, manage time, stay motivated, avoid stress, seek out the best teachers and courses, form important relationships, and graduate — happily — at the top of the class. Short, pithy chapters cover such topics as writing a good paper, research and the college library, taking advantage of college support services, balancing athletics and academics, navigating modern college technology, and more.
