College Bound?

ugaIt’s September and the halls of academia await. You’ve done everything you can to prepare—you have completed mountains of homework, passed exams, worked on becoming a well-rounded student, wrote essays and submitted applications. Now, with graduation and summer vacation behind you, you are about to embark upon your college days. Starting this new chapter in your life can be a little nerve-wracking, especially if you are leaving home for the first time. But if you have some time before college starts, pick up the following books from the Library. They can help prepare you for your first roommate experience, campus life, academic life and more.
