Every year, millions of high schoolers take the next step to further their education by applying to college. While the typical eighteen-year-old spends two-thirds of his or her life in school, college can be a daunting prospect. Teens should be able to enjoy their final years of high school without feeling stressed about their life after graduation.
In College: The Ultimate Teen Guide, Lisa Maxwell Arter addresses high school students' concerns about their college futures. In addition to providing an overview of the application process, this book offers advice on:
  • how to choose the right school
  • successful application tips
  • when and how to involve parents

  • Uniquely, this book also outlines the college experience, particularly the first year, offering useful information every freshman needs to survive and thrive on campus—from housing and navigating the bookstore to safety and interactions with other students, faculty, and university personnel. Tips included here help students:
  • develop successful relationships with roommates
  • manage stress
  • study effectively
  • balance school and life responsibilities
  • plan and manage finances

  • Featuring real stories and quotes from teens about their experiences, this book guides young adults through their transition from high school to college and sheds light on the entire process—from committing to a school to the end of freshman year. College: The Ultimate Teen Guide serves as a valuable resource for all teens, whether they are just beginning to think about their future or are ready to take the next steps in their education.
