And he deals with the emotional issues, since this is a time of transition and growth for the whole family. Finally, he makes it clear that the best college choice is not simply the school that is the most difficult to get into.

Admissions by Design: Stop the Madness and Find the Best College for You

The race to matriculate into the most prestigious university possible is killing America's students. There is a better way!

Admissions by Design is a poignant, unorthodox, and thorough guide that upends the traditional paradigm of college admissions. Incorporating the latest research in brain science and human development and using stories from her nearly 20 years of work with students, Lisa Fisher offers students practical tools to reframe the college admissions process to one of an inspired and authentic journey toward self-discovery.

Building from the root of the word "admission", meaning "toward purpose", and tying the college admissions process to the development of self and to emerging trends in economic development, the author argues that the admissions process shouldn't be about getting into a prestigious "name" school, but about a journey to knowing one's self, heeding one's callings, and identifying the "right fit" school that will serve as the catalyst to embracing a purpose-led life.

Presenting facts and details about the ways in which the current system of college admissions negatively impacts students, the author challenges prevailing methods and offers new ideas and solutions to reinvent the approach to college admissions to be more humanistic and student-centered. This practical guide challenges students to define and pursue their unique paths and offers hands-on tools to help students in their process of self-discovery and in identifying and applying to the "right fit" college.

Pledged: The Secret Life of Sororities

Updated 10 years after it is original publication, Pledged by Alexandra Robbins is as timely today as it was when first published. With salacious breaking news about fraternities and sororities shocking the general public (and members themselves), Pledged exposes what really goes on behind the facades of some of these Greek organizations. Robbins, an investigative journalist, went undercover as a sorority sister; her expose is a breathtaking narrative of tumultuous breakups, fights, drunk driving, stalkers, cover-ups, predation by faculty and staff, theft, rape, an abundance of drugs and alcohol, and much, much more.

Summary: Originals - How Non-Conformists Move the World
There is a strand of genius in each and every one of us. There is a song inside everybody's heart that the world has never had a chance to listen to and maybe, if nothing is done, will never get to be heard altogether. That is what the world sadly loses every single day when people accept the conditions they are living in by choosing not to lend an ear to the springs of ideas that incessantly visit them. Why have we allowed mediocrity to rule over us? Why don't we question the systems that brought these misgivings to our lives? Why have we given up?

They said experience is the best teacher, but today I profess that a wise son learns from the lives of those who came before him. Looking back at the men and women who built the foundations of what we see, looking at their challenges and travails, we get to appreciate that there is more to what we already have and know. Many have fought for their freedom, many have fought for ideas we presently enjoy, and many might have supported the course of change through the efforts that they could afford. All in all, they have brazenly shown us that though there was a price they paid for what they advocated for, it is possible at the end of the day to achieve them.

Originals is here as an ally, an enemy, a thought provoker, a calming salve, and, most of all, an inspirer devoted to challenging your beliefs, your truths and mixing them up with real stories, all in an effort to exfoliate the nasty crust you are wearing and release the adornment being hidden.

Here is a preview of what you'll learn:
  • Creative Destruction,
  • Blind Inventors and One-Eyed Investors,
  • Out on a Limb,
  • Goldilocks and the Trojan Horse,
  • Rebel with a Cause,
  • Rethinking Groupthink,
  • Rocking the Boat and Keeping it Steady,
  • The Book at a Glance,
  • Conclusion,
  • Final Thoughts,
  • Now What?,
  • Bonus.
