Most of the advice we hear and read seems like it was designed for a seven year-old. How often do we hear a basketball coach telling a kid that the team simply needs to score more, or a teacher asserting that a student needs to focus? These are worthy goals; how to reach these goals, sadly, is rarely discussed. This book will do the opposite. Much of what is written here is designed to help college students (principally those focused on the liberal arts/humanities) learn how to make the most of their four (or more) years of undergraduate education. If I do my job, every reader will learn how to determine what they really like to do, what they’re good at doing, and how those two things translate to a job they want to do. Asked to discuss their future, college students invariably give one of the following three responses: 1. I’m lost. I have no idea what I want to do when I graduate. 2. Everyone tells me to find my passion. How am I supposed to do that? 3. I know what I want to do, but I don’t know how to make it happen. 173 Pages Every College Student Must Read will help students answer these and many other questions, leading them to feel confident and excited about their post-college life.
