Have you ever thought to yourself, “I wish I knew how to be more involved with my university,” or “I really wish someone would have told me about that beforehand”? Well, you’re not alone.

As college students, we tend to put a lot of pressure on ourselves to be the best that we can be—to be successful, to be loved—ironically, to our own detriment.

From FOMO to failure, we oscillate and often find ourselves between Scylla and Charybdis, not knowing how exactly to excel while forgetting that taking on new responsibilities can be its own form of irresponsible behavior. We might do nothing, or we may even try to do too much, and inevitably, we fail.

Thankfully, hindsight can provide insight.

“OMG, the Things I Learned in College” by Bob Roth provides university students who might be feeling overwhelmed by the college rat race with helpful insights to navigate the complexities of the college experience. Stories exploring campus and dorm life, relationships, sex and drugs, working with professors, starting career paths, failure and success, etc., all come together to form a clear picture of a positive, relatable college experience.

A quick, cheap, and easy read, Bob Roth’s book can help students—new and old—come out of college with a greater sense of accomplishment and personal achievement, a confidence in themselves fostered throughout their university experience that will help them to be successful in their future endeavors. So, snag a copy of “OMG, The Things I Learned in College” today.
