Grown & Gone: Stories and tips to help students survive their first independent year of college is a great book of real world stories and tips shared by college students and one high school senior. The contributors of this book are very candid as they explain their troubles and triumphs during their undergraduate year. 


If you are a high school student or a college freshman, I bet you’ve got your first year of college all figured out. You are about to have the time of your life – parties, friends, fun, your own dorm room, and a bit of school work. The next few years of college will be just like high school, except no parents, no curfews, and thank goodness – no lectures. Well, that’s what we thought too. But, things don’t always work out like we think they will. If you want real life stories and tips that will help you improve your college experience, this is the book for you.


Inspiring stories. Real-life tips for High School and College students. This should be a MUST read for high school students to give them the real facts about going to college from students just like them. As a college professor, I wish ALL my students read this book before they started college.

Grown & Gone is a fantastic compilation of personal stories to give incoming college freshman a quick dose of reality. This book offers the truth about the hardships of attending college for the first time, how best to deal with professors, and how to learn from the mistakes of others. Don’t skip the checklists and challenges at the end of the book — they are a great way to prepare your high school senior for what comes next! Highly recommended!
