"This book is the ultimate campus wingwoman! It guides you through the tricky situations of classes, parties and hook-ups so you'll never have to feel like a newbie!" --Ann Shoket, millennial expert and former editor-in-chief of "Seventeen"

"The Her Campus team writes a girlfriendy, honest, and fact-filled how-to covering everything from roommate relations to social media management. Colleges should be handing this out at orientation--it's the ultimate handbook to college life in 2015." --Chandra Turner, Founder and President of Ed2010

"I wish we'd had this kind of 'everything you need to know about college but were afraid to ask' when I was heading off to freshman fall. You think you know it all but this book points out the insider's guide to everything from safety (not a small issue) to spring break fun. It's a must-have for any graduating senior who has more questions than answers, but would not dare ask Mom and Dad. Leave it on her pillow, stuff it in her duffel, but make sure she packed it off to college, and refers back to it again and again." --Lucy Danziger, former editor-in-chief of "SELF"

"What every college-bound girl needs--an insider guide to the essentials of success and survival on campus--by three of the best big sisters you could have!" --Carley Roney, Founder of The Knot

"This excellent new book is perfect for any high school senior girl about to step onto the steep learning curve that is college. The tone...sounds more like wise advice from a wise older sister who is adept at navigating sticky situations with roommates, boyfriends, and professors.... This is one book that should be packed along with the XL sheets and shower caddy for the freshman dorm."

"This book takes you through literally anything you could ever think of in order to have the best college experience possible. Whether you're going to be a freshman or about to graduate, we can guarantee there's something in here for you that will significantly improve your time on campus." --Smart Girls Group
