Reviews

THE FRESHMAN SURVIVAL GUIDE is a strikingly clever work from Bradbury and McGarvey in which the potentially tremulous first weeks of college life are dissected into 25 must know survival tips. From healthy relationship building to avoiding the disastrous pull of procrastination, the guide colorfully dispenses common sense and holistic development. The newest members of any college community will find in this guide a wonderful blend of down-to-earth advice and answers to the deepest of life questions. It is not afraid to address the big life questions of faith, service, the meaning of life and one's spiritual journey. I can not think of a better gift to give a son or daughter, a niece or nephew, a godchild or grandchild who is heading off to college.--Michael Galligan-Stierle, Ph.D., President, Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities
Every young person goes to college with a computer-and now they need to go with THE FRESHMAN SURVIVAL GUIDE.--Bob McCarty, Executive Director, National Federation of Youth Ministry
College students arrive on campus with impressive resumes and advanced academic skills. Many, however, do not have the ability to confront the profound questions of meaning, values or spirituality that will face them as they enter the adult world. This book makes an important contribution to helping college students navigate these defining moments.--Wayne L. Firestone, President, Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life
