According to the US Census Bureau's report on the number of college students in the United States, more than 500,000 high school seniors pack up and leave their homes for college each year, intent on starting the next level of their education. The freshman year of college is an initiation into independent living, but it can be incredibly stressful on someone who is not prepared. It is estimated that almost 150,000 students will dropout before starting their second year, and it is not always because of the angry professor or sub-par living conditions. Everything from the cost of living on your own to the stress of trying to balance a job, school, and a completely new kind of social life will weigh heavily on you. The key to being successful in your first year of college is to be prepared for anything that might arise, maintaining a strict, well-organized schedule, balancing your free time and new found social freedom, and putting the right amount of energy into your studies.

Release Date: 2015-02-01
Genre: Self-Help

The Freshman Fabulous: The Girl's Guide to College is a humorous, helpful and honest interactive guide written by a recent grad, for the future grad. As a college student, Jess secured an internship all four years with companies like Disney World, Make-A-Wish and the TODAY Show. She gave campus tours every Tuesday and taught fitness classes every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. She played intramural coed flag football and got a stage three concussion. As a sophomore, she made it on CNN running the Krispy Kreme Challenge (eating a dozen donuts and then running 5 miles). Her junior year, she ended up starting my own company, Headbands of Hope, which gives headbands to children with cancer. By the time she graduated in May 2013, it was her full-time job and in over 100 stores in the US and Canada. Being fresh out of college, Jess decided to put all of her tips and tricks (and mistakes) into a guide to help others who are about to embark on their college journey. The Freshman Fabulous: The Girl's Guide to College isn't filled with statistics and studies about college. It's filled with real and honest stories and advice from Ekstrom as well as other anecdotes from female grads. Topics range from what to wear on your first day of class, what to do if you fail a test, how to land internships, studying abroad, what to eat (and what not to eat) at the dining halls, dating, what to do when you have roommate troubles, joining clubs, picking electives and important topics like safety on campus and alcohol. One of the most unique parts about this book is the interactive opportunity. Readers will be encouraged to map out their own college career and goals along the way by using helpful guides. This book isn't a "how to book" to live a college experience like Jess did. But rather, a compilation of lessons learned in college. Through this book, readers will be able to use her stories as a foundation to map out their own college journey.
