1 in 4 college freshmen do not return for sophomore year. 45% of college freshmen will never graduate. 65% of college students feel they have underachieved. Why?
Every college student can succeed academically and obtain a high GPA. The reason so many college students underperform is because theyre not taught how to transition from the structured high school environment to the unstructured college academic environment. The Strategic Student teaches high school seniors and college underclassmen how to make this transition and become more self-reliant. The author served as a college professor, academic advisor, and administrator at the University of Colorado in Boulder. As a freshmen professor and advisor, he collected lessons and study habits he learned from his students and later returned to school to take undergraduate classes to test and refine the strategies covered in this book. The Strategic Student is the only book that offers a student, professor, and advisor perspective along with tested and proven academic strategies.
