Buzz about our book

"Some things are common sense, but some things aren't — especially when it comes to navigating a college campus in a way that's fun, independent and totally safe. This guide touches on everything from dating and studying, to making friends and joining clubs outside of class."

"This book is the ultimate campus wingwoman! It guides you through the tricky situations of classes, parties and hook-ups so you’ll never have to feel like a newbie!"
- Ann Shoket, millennial expert and former editor-in-chief of Seventeen

"The Her Campus team writes a girlfriendy, honest, and fact-filled how-to covering everything from roommate relations to social media management. Colleges should be handing this out at orientation—it’s the ultimate handbook to college life in 2015."
- Chandra Turner, Founder and President of Ed2010

"This book is a must-have for any graduating senior who has more questions than answers, but would not dare ask Mom and Dad. Leave it on her pillow, stuff it in her duffel, but make sure she packs it off to college, and refers back to it again and again."
- Lucy Danziger, former editor-in-chief of SELF

"What every college-bound girl needs -- an insider guide to the essentials of success and survival on campus -- by three of the best big sisters you could have!"
