Description

I WISH I'D KNOWN THAT IN COLLEGE Your time as an undergrad has the potential to be incredibly fun, rewarding, and life changing in ways you may not yet even imagine-that is, if you play your cards right and take full advantage of what your university has to offer. Sadly, very few students ever learn the secret handshake of how to make the most of their college years. Until now. For undergrads (and parents) hoping their tuition will pay off, GETTING THE BEST OUT OF COLLEGE is a must-read. Distilling more than fifty years of experience from some of the leading minds at top tier institutions, GETTING THE BEST OUT OF COLLEGE reveals insider advice that makes the hefty price tag worth it: how to impress professors, live with a roommate, pick the best courses (and do well in them), design a meaningful transcript, earn remarkable internships, prepare for a successful career after graduation, and much more. This new edition also includes feedback from students who put GETTING THE BEST OUT OF COLLEGE to the test, as well as new chapters on what to do when college "just isn't working" and unique opportunities with international students and study abroad. With a new forward by Duke University's Coach K, GETTING THE BEST OUT OF COLLEGE gives invaluable advice that enables students (and their parents!) to make the most of their college years.
