Summary

From the professors who teach NYU's most popular elective class, "Science of Happiness", a fun, comprehensive guide to surviving and thriving in college and beyond.

Every year, almost 4,000,000 students begin their freshman year at colleges and universities nationwide. Most of them will sleep less and stress out a whole lot more. By the end of the year, 30 percent of those freshmen will have dropped out. For many, the unforeseen demands of college life are so overwhelming that "the best four years of your life" can start to feel like the worst.

Enter Daniel Lerner and Dr. Alan Schlechter, ready to teach students how to not only survive college, but flourish in it. Filled with fascinating science, real-life stories, and tips for building positive lifelong habits, U Thrive addresses the opportunities and challenges every undergrad will face - from finding a passion to dealing with nightmarish roommates and surviving finals week. Engaging and hilarious, U Thrive will help students grow into the happy, successful alums they all deserve to be.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

A MUST READ

Sent this to my boys- both in college and bought it for myself as well so we can all chat about it together— invaluable info! Thank you - actually teared up at the end… sad for it to be over and so grateful for what I learned and aim to pass along!

Must read for students in life, not just college

This can be applied to anyone, not only students in college. Dan and Alan have such a gift in communicating how to realize the steps to success and happiness for oneself. They will change your life, I promise. Just ask thousands of NYU students who pack into classrooms for this info. I'm not kidding, most classes are tight for a week or two but thin out, not their's; never before have I seen people of all ages squish themselves into such small spaces and do anything to make it to class on time.

The book I wish I had in college

As a professor, I loved this book. I'll encourage all my students to buy it.
