Stepping into an unknown future can be quite daunting for young adults. Concordia Publishing House is here to help. In College 101: A Christian Survival Guide, alumni from universities and colleges across the country share their real life experiences to prepare future and current college students for the challenges of life on campus.

“The purpose of College 101 is to offer down-to-earth advice on how to stand firm in one’s Christian beliefs in a university setting,” says Erin Mackenzie, co-author of College 101 and Marketing Manager at CPH. “It’s a quick read, but the Holy Spirit will undoubtedly work through the advice of the authors–all of whom have been there, done that–to affirm and strengthen students in their Christian walks, even as those walks lead them away from the faith foundations they’ve had all their lives.”

Covering thirteen major topics, a panel of recent college graduates share genuine, honest, and insightful advice and counsel. Through the authors’ personal experiences as students, friends, and active leaders in campus ministry, you will discover a unique perspective on college and campus life that only Christian peers can provide.

Whether you are preparing to head off to college for the first time, or if you already have some college experience, College 101: A Christian Survival Guide has something to offer. Experience the challenges and joys of college life as these young Christians share their ideas for living and thriving on campus.
