Great Book Aug 25, 2008
I always enjoy the Chicken Soup for the soul books. This is great for a college student, who doesn't have a alot of time to read but enjoys some short real life stories.
A Must Read! Jun 28, 2008
As a current college student, I loved Chicken Soup for the College Soul. It captured the uncertainty, exciting, nervous, and thrilling feelings of college and bottled them into a fabulous book. I enjoyed the book because the stories were relatable. Even though I have never experienced many of the situations in the stories, having the stories written by real people made me feel like I could. It motivated me to not only cherish the four short year of my college experience, but to take the knowledge that I will obtain in and out of the classroom, and contribute to the world in positive ways. Many of the stories tugged on my heartstrings and made me tear up. Other's had me laughing so hard my sister wanted me to read them to her. I also learned how my parents must have felt leaving me at my college while they went home. Of course I was homesick the first few days, but that's nothing compared to the feeling of letting go of a child. I gained so much appreciation for my parents after stories like these. I recommend Chicken Soup for the College Soul for everyone- those about to go to college, those in college, and those who graduated college. It is an inspiring read- and it made me want to stay in college FOREVER! College is a time to meet new people, learning interesting things, and learn and come to terms with who you really are. It's great to have a book that captures these special moments.
a more personal idea Jan 7, 2006
All the Chicken Soup books are very sweet. I got this one and the one for teenage souls for my son. He liked reading the intimate stories about college, since he'll be there soon. But more personally meaningful was a copy of "Words to Live By: A Journal of Wisdomfor Someone You Love" that my wife and I filled out for him, with our own life lessons and experiences. It started some wonderful conversations. I highly recommend it too.
A new chapter Sep 9, 2005
I enjoyed reading these heart-warming stories that touched my soul. They relate my own feelings of confusion, doubts, and excitement I had during my first college experience. I got this book for a gift from my mom, and having this book helped got through my first year. It is a perfect gift for any new college student.
This book prepared me for getting into Algonquin. Algonquin is a huge campus filled with thousands of students, and I was this small town girl going through a big change. I expected the workload to be intense, and that it was a lot different from high school. In college, no student needed discipline, but in high school you did. I was responsible enough to be treated like an adult. I was now entering into adulthood. Unfortunely, getting to school was always frustrating, because every day I travelled on the bus for a least an hour. I did not own a car and still don't. My home was far, far away. I missed my mom so much that I wanted to go home and drop all my courses. I needed her more than anyone or anything. The thing was I just needed give myself some time. I just couldn't give up on everything I worked for to get into college. I was slowly adapting new surroundings. Then I remembered one of the messages in the book that you should go for your dreams and never give up. I decided to continue with my studies, and get on with life - life's a journey. I'm learning new things every day.
These stories have given me love, hope, and encouragement. First year isn't always easy, you just have to hang in there. This book guided me through tough times. I learned to stand strong whenever trouble comes my way. I highly recommend to all college students.
Interesting Break Jul 5, 2005
As a college student myself , I really enjoyed reading this book over the summer. The stories made me laugh a little as well as tear up a little, after thinking about my first year of college, as I am a rising sophomore, and the stories were classic Chicken Soup-very fun !
