College is about way more than just frats and finals. It's a time to learn new skills, encounter different cultures, test out potential careers, and take a stab at something new just because it sounds cool. To leave college a better, smarter, and more interesting person than you were when you started, all you need is an open mind, a willing spirit, and (of course) this book!

These 77 entries cover everything from negotiating the terms of an apartment rental to attending a school-sponsored lecture event to hosting a movie marathon--and supplemental sidebars provide tips for doing everything cheaply and well. (But remember: The most important thing to do? Graduate!)

Review quote

"Bondy follows her babysitting guide, Don't Sit on the Baby, with a book that urges readers to make the most of their time away at school: 'College wouldn't be college if it didn't include a wide range of experiences, ' writes Bondy in her introduction. Each of the 77 ideas gets a spread of its own, and Bondy groups her suggestions into categories revolving around the dorm ('Bring your roommate a gift'), flying solo ('Get lost in town'), being outgoing (in praise of the dance party: 'Booty shaking is the almighty peacemaking universal language of fun'), preparing for the future ('The connections you make now will last a lifetime if you nurture those relationships'), and more. Sidebars, bulleted lists, and illustrations featuring a stick-figure robot contribute to a format tailor-made for skipping around. Whether readers are introverts, partiers, activists, or athletes, Bondy provides an array of opportunities to make their time in college as well-rounded as possible. And much of the advice applies to life beyond college, too: 'People make the most colossal mistakes when they don't trust their gut.'"--Publishers Weekly
