There are numerous guides for choosing a college, paying for college and getting good grades in college But The Freshman Survival Guide is the first to offer advice on academics, relationships and lifestyle and combine it with guidance on how to cope with the spiritual, emotional and ethical questions and issues that confront young adults. It is the greatly expanded result of a web-based article on BustedHalo.com, a website for young spiritual seekers that exploded into a hugely popular item, forwarded to more than 30,000 people in three months.Divided into five sections (Relationships, Identity and Spirituality, Academics, Risk, and balance), the book tackles issues that include: Homesickness; Learning Who You Are; Real Stats on Mental Health; 10 Reasons to Show Up to Class; Are Your Earning Your BA or Your IM; Safety: Don't Be Paranoid, Just be Smart; Doritos Is Not A Food Grou and 19 other equally pertinent areas that other college guides don't address.
