Summary

Written by the leading authorities on the first-year seminar and grounded in research,Your College Experienceoffers students practical help in making the transition to college and getting the most out of their time there. Speaking with evident respect for students at all kinds of institutions, with all kinds of learning styles, and with all kinds of backgrounds, the authors ask them to consider their own goals, their purposes for being in college. Particularly relevant to today’s students today, a new Money chapter discusses managing money, building credit, and financing college. A new chapter on Emotional Intelligence helps students recognize their own strengths and weaknesses so they can understand themselves better and direct their own path. A fresh, clean new design eliminates clutter so that students can focus on the important topics.

The recipient of his institution's highest award for teaching excellence, John has over 40 years of experience directing and teaching in the most widely emulated first-year seminar in the country, the University 101 course at the University of South Carolina (USC), Columbia. John is universally recognized as one of the country's leading educators for his role in initiating and orchestrating an international reform movement to improve the beginning college experience, a concept he coined as "the first-year experience." He is the founding executive director of the National Resource Center for The First-Year Experience and Students in Transition at USC, the Policy Center on the First Year of College and most recently the John N. Gardner Institute for Excellence in Undergraduate Education (www.jngi.org), the latter two based in Brevard, N.C.
