When offered a chance to read Welcome to College I grabbed it! As you know, college is quickly approaching for ou family and the more I can find out, the better.
This book is an amazing resource. If we has time I would have had my oldest read it and review it with me. But with life (livestock show, raising animals and so many other things) there was not time.
So here are my thoughts! Amazing book. The chapters are a quick read, very specific, so you can look up topics you want to read about or read through this over a year. I plan to get it into Jacob’s hands and have him read a few chapters a week in the next year so the he has an idea of what is coming.
My favorite chapter was about reading, and suggested a speed reading course before or at the beginning of college. What a wonderful suggestion – speed reading might have made my life easier.
Another great thing about this book is that is really is from a conservative view point and not watered down like so much in our society today. I appreciated the candid view on sexuality on campus. This book really is for a follower of Christ, someone desiring to walk through college in a Christ-like way.
I highly recommend this book to anyone, like me, with soon to be attending kids still at home, or even someone with recent graduates headed to college. This is a great tool & resource as well as a great guide!

Welcome to College: A Christ-Follower’s Guide for the Journey(Kregel, March 2017)
Is there a more frightening question for a graduating high school senior than “What will you do with your life?”
In college, whether they realize it or not, students will answer that question every day with each decision. All of the new friends and new experiences of higher education will shape their future. It’s critical that students know how to handle college before they’re in the thick of it.
Jonathan Morrow tackles the tough questions that arise during these formative years, including:
—How do you grow spiritually?
—How do you manage your time to both study well and have fun?
—Is all truth relative?
—Are there good reasons to be a Christian?
—As a Christian, how should you view issues like dating and sex?
Each chapter of this new edition has been updated, and the author has included a new chapter on Christianity, homosexuality, and the Bible. Grounded in both his own extensive experience and biblical truth, Morrow’s book is full of quick, easy-to-read chapters and excellent advice.
