Best Book on Adjusting to College Life

Adjusting to college life can be a challenge (to put it lightly!). And while there are some great resources online, sometimes a good, old-fashioned book can provide new college students with the best advice.


The 2012 About.com Reader's Choice Award for the Best Book on Adjusting to College Life aims to help students figure out which book best rises to the challenge. Chosen by readers, the award will provide the winner with recognition as a great resource. Additionally, the award will provide students with a reader-chosen text that actually delivers on what it promises: helping students adjust to college.


The award timeline will proceed as follows:

  • Nominations are accepted from January 18, 2012 through February 15, 2012.
  • Online voting will take place from February 22, 2012 through March 21, 2012.
  • Winners will be announced on March 30, 2012.


Please note that the About.com Guide to College Life, Kelci Lynn Lucier, will be facilitating the process. She will select the final nominees based on the number and quality of nominations received. For more information on the awards, please visit the 2012 About.com Readers' Choice Awards homepage.
