Description:

A friendly, practical primer for incoming college students on how to successfully transition from high school to the halls of academe by the professor everyone wishes they could have as their faculty advisor. As freshmen face the culture shock of campus life and reel under the weight of overwhelming scholastic expectations, Professor Philip Freeman counters the confusion with an insider's perspective on navigating these challenges early on with the help of a well-chosen faculty advisor. Freeman outlines the benefits of developing appropriate mentoring relationships with teachers, explains how to foster these crucial relationships, suggests how to use - not abuse - them to academic advantage, and demystifies faculty hierarchy by revealing who makes a good choice, who is a waste of time, and why. In addition, straight-forward, no-nonsense study strategies, including how to read a book, when to start a paper, why it's smart to show up for class, and what not to call your professor round out this little gem of a book. Professor Freeman's timeless advice is applicable whether the reader is attending a small-town junior college, a sprawling mega-campus, or an ivy-league university that will set the student up for four years of success - and beyond.
