The Her Campus UEA team arrived back from Easter holidays to a lovely surprise waiting for us from Her Campus HQ …a brand new copy of ‘The Her Campus Guide to College Life’.
Team UEA had an evening in with a teapot of earl grey, some Viennese chocolate fingers and a good read of the first official Her Campus Guidebook. After reading it from cover to cover, we can honestly say that this is a fantastic guide and we wish that we had something this informative at the start of our university degree/ year abroad…It certainly would have saved us a lot of time and tears!
To give you a little taster, here is the blurb collegiettes…

“As Campus Correspondent of Her Campus UEA and a student in my final term of my final academic year, I STILL found this an insightful read. It not only has everything that I wish I’d known pre-uni from dorm safety and money issues to studying abroad, it has advice to prepare you for life after university also. As a graduating student, I focused more on the career-based chapters from how to perfect my CV to building my Linkedin profile and under the book’s guidance I have already received internship offers!”
