Book Review: College 101: A Girl’s Guide to Freshman Year


[ABOUT] College 101: A Girl’s Guide to Freshman Year by Julie Zeilinger is the perfect current guide on “How to Do College” for any incoming freshman or current college student. The book would make a great feature or sidebar in an article about Preparing Your Daughter for College or Things Your Daughter Should Know Before College.

  • Why it’s okay to be “undecided” – academic planning and “leaning in”
  • Sexual Health – taking control, policy, STIs, and resources
  • Relationships – the 5 types of roommates, making and losing friends, dating, breakups and more
  • Women and Drinking – the rise of “bro-culture” and the female approach to partying

[REVIEW] Send your daughter off with this book when she leaves for college. It covers a lot of important topics for a freshman. The author confronts topics like the adjustment period, roomate issues, managing money, academics, joining a sorority, depression, sexual health, making friends and more.
