Deljah S. Dickson Mentoring the College-bound, page 2

Freshman 101 offers students practical tips on a variety of subjects, including leaving home, living with roommates, dating and navigating finances. Guiding students through every area of campus life, it is a must-have reference book for every freshman-to-be as well as a handy tool for teenagers contemplating college and their parents.

Dickson’s vision is to remove the apprehension, anxiety and confusion from the minds and hearts of each college freshman by providing a roadmap to maneuver through life’s first independent journey and turn typical challenges into positive experiences of academic pursuit.
