Start the Semester Off Right!

Start the semester on the right foot by checking out these books offering helpful guides, advice, and tips for a successful academic year. The September display of Undergraduate Library books in the Shapiro Lobby showcases books to help you whether you are just starting out your college career as an incoming Freshman or advancing as a more-seasoned student pursuing our PhD. The wide variety of college career books in the Undergraduate collection includes something for everyone! 

Juggling school and a sport? Check out College Knowledge for the Student Athlete and The Student Athlete’s Guide to College Success

Seek out subject-specific help with books like Study Skills for Health and Social Care Students, Writing Your Psychology Research Paper, and Empirical Research and Writing: a Political Science Student’s Practical Guide, and Ok, I’ve Signed Up for Statistics, Now What? 

Just feeling a little overwhelmed as a new college student? Look to Letters to a New Student, College 101: A Girl’s Guide to Freshman Year, or Getting Ready for College

Not new to academics, but need some advanced guidance? The Undergraduate Collection also has How to Survive Your PhD, How to Write Your BA Thesis, and Navigating the Doctoral Journey to help you out.
