77 Things You Absolutely Have to Do Before You Finish College
How do you have the perfect college experience? What do you need to know as a freshman? What experiences should you have? What should you avoid? What mistakes are inevitable? While every college experience is different, and rightfully so, there are some do’s and do-not-do’s that are universal, and plenty of suggestions that’ll work for most college students. 77 Things You Absolutely Have to Do Before You Finish College does a commendable job of keeping its advice and suggestions as all-encompassing as possible.
Some are common sense, some are great freshman-year starters, some are college bucket-list experiences, and some are genuinely heartfelt pleas for a happier, more satisfying, and safer college experience overall. And although it’s been a while since I’ve been in college, I can’t think of one thing Bondy missed. Everything from roommates and socializing to studying, weekend fun, and money management are covered in these pages, often with lighthearted illustrations and chuckle-inducing commentary. (“Booty shaking is the almighty peacemaking universal language of fun” was a particular favorite of mine.)
77 Things You Absolutely Have to Do Before You Finish College is a terrific addition to any high school grad’s gift pile or freshman-year move-in gear.
Chris Hayden has been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
