eBook of the Month: The Naked Roommate

… And 107 Other Issues You Might Run Into in College. By Harlan Cohen Whether you’re returning for your senior year of college or just starting out at as a freshman, this ebook offers useful, straight-forward and often humorous expert and student advice on all facets of college life:
  • Roommates
  • Laundry
  • Classes
  • Dating/Relationships/Sex
  • Dorm Life
  • Alcohol & Parties
  • Managing money & Credit cards
  • And everything in between.
Freshmen will likely find the sections on dealing with roommates, finding friends, and getting involved to be most helpful during these first few weeks on campus. And of course, since the main point of college is getting that degree, you’ll want to study chapter 7, which offers tips for how to be successful in the classroom. Though some of the information in the book might be old news for upperclassmen, it is nice to be reminded of how to make the best of your time in college. Check out Chapter 12 (Money, Laundry & Cheap Eats) for a quick lesson in how building good credit now makes it easier to have a successful future. One of the best features about The Naked Roommate is that the advice is real (much of it coming from students like you) without being preachy. This is a fantastic source to get the new school year started off right. The Naked Roommate is an ebook offered through NetLibrary, meaning you can read it for free online from anywhere. It is available only to students, faculty and staff of UT Tyler. Access this book:
