In high school you live with your parents. In college you live with your friends. In high school a ten-page paper was a bear. In college it's a gift. The people you thought were nerds in high school are okay in college. With everything from how to say good-bye to mom and dad, to tips for getting along with a difficult roommate, Ready for College gives first-time college students what they need to succeed. Michael Pennock offers some wise warnings and advice to help students make an easy transition from high school to college. More than just the nuts and bolts, Ready for College shows adolescents that college is a time to develop a sense of self, not bound by previous ties, yet intimately connected with the love and lessons of family life. Ready for College provides a spiritual dimension, encouraging college students to develop an ongoing relationship with God through the practice of their faith. This book is a must read before first-time students move to college and register for the first semester of classes.
