It's Here: The Her Campus Guide to College Life

Girls, IT'S HERE! The Her Campus Guide to College Life is here!

We are so proud of our national chapter for taking the time to take everything they've learned over the years and compile it into a 290 page life guide. Seriously. This guide covers everything from surviving your first day of freshman year to staying safe, healthy and happy.

Here's a sneak peek at some of our favorite tips from the book. 

Staying Safe

  • Keep flamable objects, such as class notes, away from open flames when cooking. (#guilty)
  • Store campus safety numbers in your phone. You never know when they'll come in handy!
  • If you choose to drink at parties, don't drink from mysterious punch bowls.

Staying Healthy on Campus

  • No more excuses: With so many workout optios available on campus, stop telling yourself you'll get to the gym tomorrow. Today is the day, so make it happen!
  • Maintaining a healthy lifestyle means making good diet and exercise a habit!
  • Taking care of your physical health with proper diet, nutrition and exercise can make a huge difference in your mental health, too!

Developing Smart and Successful Relationships

  • Your RA is the ultimate resource for all things dorm life, plus a great person to turn to if you're feeling homesick or dealing with roommate issues.
  • Dormcest can be tempting, given proximity and convenience, but remember that a romantic interaction today could make for an awkward run-in tomorrow.
