Ten Strategies for College Success

All of your hard work in high school has paid off: you have a solid GPA, numerous extracurricular achievements to your name, and an acceptance letter from an excellent college. Now what? What can you expect from the college experience, and how can you get the most out of it? This book will answer your questions and help you find real and lasting success in college.

Deans at America’s top institutions—including Harvard, Princeton, Stanford, Yale, and Columbia—join John Bader to tell you what you need to know to have a rich and rewarding college experience. With wisdom, reassurance, and an insider’s perspective, this lively and timely guide will help you develop strategies such as:

• Focus on learning, not on grades
• Build a new relationship with your parents
• Explore your academic choices
• Learn from diversity at home and abroad
• Cope with failure
• Plan boldly for life after college

A complete reworking, this second edition includes information on managing workloads and faculty relationships, as well as new material focused on first-generation challenges and international students. Dean’s List offers a thoughtful, commonsense approach to higher education that allows students to make the most of their four years on campus—and beyond.
