Thriving At College

Now that school for some of us is beginning to draw to a close, college planning is a concern for some of us. So where do you begin if you're not sure what to do first? What should you major in? What planning should you be doing during your summer? How will grades impact you in college? What groups should you be drawn to and which should you avoid? How does one maintain their faith while attending college away from the influences of their church and home family members?

In the latest book by Alex Chediak, Thriving At College, is just the tool you should be adding if college is in your near future or even someone you know. I am sure, you wish if there was a great Christian book that would help you make the right plans to get you started on the right foot. This is where this book comes into play. Here are some of the things you'll discover and mistakes you can avoid making:

  • What to do with your faith
  • Expecting College To Be The Same As High School
  • Distorting Dating and Romance
  • Refusing to Grow Up
  • Being A Flake
  • Living Out of Balance
  • Being Too Passive or Too Cocky
  • Living For Grades
  • Wasting Opportunities

The book also contains some appendix's that will help you weed through the college selection process and how to make sure you don't waste your college years while getting ready for the real world that awaits.

I received this book compliments of Tyndale House Publishers for my honest review and think that every parent that is planning on college in their child's future or even for the parent considering going back to college, this makes the perfect resource and scores a perfect 5 out of 5 stars. This book is available in paperback and eReader formats.
