After all the testing and touring and applying, your child has been accepted to college. Congratulations! Now what?

Every new student grapples with making a successful transition to college-with remaining healthy, happy, grounded, and in school. Indeed, the national statistics are sobering: One in three freshmen will not come back for sophomore year, and less than 50 percent will graduate on time. A student's adjustment is key, especially during the period starting with the lazy summer months before move-in and ending at the dizzying close of a student's first semester. Distilling lessons and sharing stories (some cautionary, some entertaining, all helpful) from her long college advisory career, three-time Ivy League dean Monique Rinere presents a unique month-by-month road map to a college experience that is rich, rewarding, and successful for teens and parents alike.

Taking parents from the moment the acceptances arrive to the end of the first college semester, her expert advice covers:
assessing the right fit among your child's options: who and what to ask to get the real scoop on campus and academic life
understanding actual costs: considering hidden expenses, financial-aid and scholarship fine print, loans, and work-study opportunities
parenting through the senior slump so that students don't jeopardize their hard-won college spot
talking to your child about freshman culture shock and their new freedoms around parties, food, finances, and sleep
what your child needs to know about working with an academic advisor, interacting with professors, and creating their own community of advisors
how to help your rising freshman create a conceptual bridge from what they are, a graduating high school senior, to what they want to be, a college alum
time-management and class-scheduling tips to help your child pick an appropriate class (and extracurricular) load
advice for parents facing the emptying nest: letting go of your anxieties about your child's autonomy and seizing this opportunity to reinvent your life in new and intentional ways

"A valuable and comprehensive guide for parents of college-bound students . . . The months between high school and college are a critical time, but Dr. Monique Rinere gives you confidence that everything will be all right."-Marvin Krislov, president, Pace University
