If you have shopped at any large retailer lately, you probably realize school is almost back in session. Not only can you easily find parents buying lunchboxes and backpacks for the younger set, but shopping carts filled with new dorm decor for the Class of 2016 also dot the aisles.
While we understand the importance of finding the right comforter and can advocate for the importance of empty milk crates as a key to dorm-room organization, we also know that the transition to college also requires good decisions. John B. Bader’s 2011 book Dean’s List: Eleven Habits of Highly Successful College Students offers a thoughtful, common-sense approach to higher education that allows every student to achieve. The book features tips from deans at many top U.S. institutions on not only how to get an “A” but also how to effectively embrace college life and become independent.
We want to share these tips with one lucky blog reader. The first reader to name one of the 11 habits Bader talks about in his book in the comments below with advice on how to develop that habit will get a free copy of Dean’s List.
