ABOUT THE BOOK The first 101 days of college, from a student's first class to their final exam, are a critical time and can mean the difference between success and failure. In this book, based on a talk I have given to over 15,000 students at 100 high schools, I share everything I have learned over the past 10 years as a college professor as to why some students succeed while others do not. Using short chapters, supporting illustrations, and an engaging writing style, students are given step-by-step instructions on how to approach their college experience, starting 30 days prior to their first semester. The book provides simple strategies on how students can get off to a strong start in college and persist to graduation within 4 years, avoiding having to pay for an extra semester or two, by developing proper planning, time management, and study skills, while giving encouragement, building confidence, and alleviating anxiety. The purpose of this book is to accelerate the personal and professional growth of college freshmen, giving readers the tools and training needed to succeed in college, preparing students to become confident leaders and high achievers on campus, and positioning them for career success upon graduation. By the end of this beautifully designed and professionally illustrated book, any anxiety about college will go away, and students will be excited about what is to come as they begin the next chapter of their lives.

GUIDANCE COUNSELOR RECOMMENDATIONS "Professor Leamon is right 'on point' with identifying the many challenges college freshmen often encounter, offering concrete solutions to achieve college success." Linda Gabor, Director of College Counseling, Saint Ignatius High School "Professor Leamon's step-by-step, no-nonsense approach to navigating college is easy for students to remember and follow." Mary Jane Loushin, Guidance Counselor, Amherst High School "Professor Leamon's book describes exactly what high school students need to know to succeed when they get to college." Dr. Dawn Ruebensaal, College & Career Guidance Counselor, Berea-Midpark High School ABOUT THE AUTHOR I am an experienced professor and program director, committed college and career coach, and successful speaker and social entrepreneur, having given my College Success 101 Talk to over 15,000 students at 100 high schools over the past 3 years. Helping students smoothly transition from high school to college and from college to career is both my passion and profession. In 2019, I wrote College Success 101: A Professor's Simple Strategies for Success in Your First 101 Days, launched CollegeSuccess101.org, and began 1:1 college coaching in order to help more students build their "college knowledge" and future prospects.
