About the book:
Is there a more frightening question for a graduating high school senior than "What will you do with your life?"
In college, whether they realize it or not, students will answer that question every day with each decision. All of the new friends and new experiences of higher education will shape their future. It's critical that students know how to handle college before they're in the thick of it.
Jonathan Morrow tackles the tough questions that arise during these formative years, including:
-How do you grow spiritually?
-How do you manage your time to both study well and have fun?
-Is all truth relative?
-Are there good reasons to be a Christian?
-As a Christian, how should you view issues like dating and sex?
Each chapter of this new edition has been updated, and the author has included a new chapter on Christianity, homosexuality, and the Bible. Grounded in both his own extensive experience and biblical truth, Morrow's book is full of quick, easy-to-read chapters and excellent advice.
I would recommend this awesome book about college to every single high schooler and first time college student. This book contained over 40 different topics about what a college student could face in college. I liked how Jonathan Morrow described how important faith is and how to take a stand and how important it is to know what you believe before you enter college. He also shares what different science theories believe such as evolution and the problem with their views. I also appreciated how real he was throughout the book and how he strongly encouraged students to go to class, how important reading and writing is, studying, working ahead, and discovering your learning style. He also shared how critical it is to not be lured into getting credit cards because they are giving away a free t-shirt, food, or anything else if you sign up. I also liked how he talked to the guys and girls in two separate chapters about what each gender will encounter and what character qualities each of us can focus on becoming. I loved how he wasn’t afraid to discuss topics such as dating, sex, homosexuality, and alcohol and what the Bible says about the different topics. Jonathan Morrow has done an amazing job at revealing what a college student will face during college. If you have a high schooler going into college, let them read this book!
