With singular candor, this book discusses the potential pitfalls and rewards of campus life, including the transition from high school; the challenges of academic, personal, and social freedom; and the opportunities offered by courses, professors, and extracurricular programs. All this information is presented in the context of one central theme: that college is preparation not simply for a career, but for life.
Victor L. Cahn is professor of English at Skidmore College.
