If you are a high school student looking forward to college, applying to college or a student in college already, this post is for you. A few months ago I got a chance to join the Her Campus Blogger Network, which is a networking site for high school and college bloggers. They have grown quite a bit now and on May 19th published their first Her Campus Guide to College Life! I decided not to wait too long and purchased my copy on Kindle and can now read it on the go as I’ve been going for more compact ways of carrying my books and notes throughout the day.
The book covers everything from academics to relationships to safety to instructor communication and is an invaluable introduction to everyday college life. I only wish I read it two years ago as a freshman, it would have made things so much easier!
My two favorite sections were Landing Jobs and Internships and Study Abroad, as the two have been my main focus in life these past few months. When I just began thinking about looking for a job in my field, I didn’t really know where to start. These chapters give a very nice and complete overview of things to consider and to search for.
All in all Her Campus Guide to College Life is definitely worth a read whether you are a high school or a college student and want to get the full college experience.
Have you read this guide? What other similar books can you recommend for fellow students?
