#MOVING OUT tweet Book01
140 Bite-Sized Ideas to Help You Move to College
by Gabrielle Jasinski, Eliza Lamson, Elizabeth Wassmann, and Hannah Miller
Foreword by Michael S. Malone
Moving to college can be exciting, yet daunting. High school seniors leaving their childhood homes and heading to college receive lots of advice–from parents, siblings, counselors, and, of course, online. Even so, the guidance they will find in #MOVING OUT tweet presents unique value. That’s because this new book represents the collective firsthand experience of four college students with rich and diverse experiences and with genuine intent to help out young people taking their first steps away from home.
The authors–Santa Clara University students Gabrielle Jasinski, Eliza Lamson, Elizabeth Wassmann, and Hannah Miller–understand and respect the all-too-common dilemmas of college freshmen. How do I cook? What do I cook? Who will do my laundry? Where do I go when I just need a hug? Addressing these basics first, the authors then move on to provide guidance that goes beyond the essentials and actually focus on enriching and adding breadth to the college experience.
Young college students themselves, the authors know that the unknown can be frightening. No matter how excited students might be to move to college, it is totally understandable to feel a tinge of nerves. And students are not the only ones feeling nervous; parents feel anxiety, too. It is clear that the authors understand this, because they address parental concerns with skill and empathy.
#MOVING OUT tweet follows a six-step progression, starting with the pre-move period (typically the senior year of high school) to the long-term–the four years of college and beyond. Written in the easy-to-absorb tweet format, the book will help students to familiarize themselves with many aspects of this new world away from home. Parents too will find immediate value in this book, as it helps their children make a smoother, easier transition to college life. Ultimately, this book will work as a support system for students during and after the big move and will provide answers to the questions that come up during this time of intense change and excitement.
