  • A must-read for all soon-to-be college women and their parents and loved ones
  • Emphasizes safety and wellness concerns in a practical manner
  • The “big sister” tone gives all of the advice a palatable sweetness

Boys and bossy roommates and big final exams — oh my! Young women on the verge of campus life can face upcoming experiences like these with angst or aplomb, depending on how well they’re informed in advance. Enter The Her Campus Guide, an intelligent read on the female perspective of freshman year and beyond.¬†Arm your college-bound daughter, sister, or niece with this warmly written manual on easily maneuvering through the ups and downs of campus living.

Written by editors of the popular college women site, this title goes a bit beyond the standard college life book structure’s focus on standard concerns, like dorm safety and dealing with drugs, to address issues Mom and Dad might be too reticent to mention directly to their not-so-little-anymore girls. The Guide‘s essential commentary on controversial points like sexual assault, eating disorders, and women’s health considerations distinguish it as a deeply helpful read that rising freshmen should seriously explore before heading to orientation.

With the tone of a successful career woman giving back to her younger peers, The Her Campus Guide caters to ambitious teens and early twentysomethings who’d like to enjoy their boisterous college days with a side of balance. Parents and loved ones concerned for their charges’ safety on campus will also appreciate the Guide‘s emphasis on overall wellness and self-protection.
