So You Got into College-Now What? A mini-fridge, a debit card, and a copy of College Rules!: the essentials of any successful college experience. Teachers, counselors, family, and friends spend endless hours helping students get into college, but few prepare them for what to do day one through graduation. Lesson #1: College is different from high school, and even seniors at the top of their class need practical advice on how to successfully transition to college. Sherrie Nist and Jodi Patrick Holschuh-professors who've dedicated their careers to helping students-here give their crash course on college success. College Rules! thoroughly and humorously covers all bases of maximizing the college experience: studying smarter not harder; handling stress; staying motivated; preparing for and taking exams; and of course, balancing work and play. Throughout, sidebars also reveal * Sad but unfortunately true student stories to save you from learning others' lessons the hard way. * Hints that'll help you squeeze every ounce of learning out of your study time. (And get to those parties sooner!) * Tips on getting more from your computer than email. * Top advice for students of all ages and walks of life-freshman, sophomores, upperclassmen, as well as those returning to school. Getting into college is the easy part; staying in and doing well is much more difficult. College Rules! is here to help you hit campus running and make the most of your college years.Nist, Sherrie is the author of 'College Rules!
