What to Do When College is Not the Best Time of Your Life free pdf If college is supposed to be the best time of our lives, why are so many students unhappy? What causes a well-adjusted and academically succesful high school graduate to suddenly flounder when he reaches college? Why might she start to binge on alcohol or engage in unsatisfying hook-ups? Where does the anger and self-doubt come from, and why is it directed at loving parents? Drawing on years of experience treating college-age youth, Leibow provides practice-based answers to these and other pressing questions. Instead of adventure, liberation, and a triumphant march into adulthood, many college students experience humiliation, insecurity, and social and academic failure. Yet by understanding themselves better and adjusting their perspectives, students can grow from these challenges and turn bad choices into wiser personal and educational decisions. Leibow focuses on issues common to college settings
