Entering college can be both a fantastic and frightening experience. Matthew Paul Turner’s Everything You Need to know Before College uses a Christian perspective to show students what to expect during this life-changing journey. Class registration, dating, health, extracurricular activities, budgeting, volunteering, safety, time management and a multitude of other topics are all addressed in this book. Turner interlaces his serious information with humorous tidbits, irrelevant ramblings, and even silly poems.
Having already graduated from college, I can honestly say Turner’s book accurately reflects my own college experience. As Turner explains, it is sometimes difficult to strike a balance between fun time and studying—too much of either can make college unbearable. The book also explores some of the important things that college students may not consider first off. For example, the importance of buying flip flops to wear in communal showers and journaling on a regular basis.
