Whether you’re heading off to college or are a current student, you’re bound to find at least a few books that can help you get through the experience. Whether you want to read a memoir or fiction, there’s something to keep you busy.
A Pleasant Escape
A Pleasant Escape is not for the faint of heart. It is a multi-room, multi-level, and multi-part puzzle that requires collaboration and a degree of spatial cognizance. Although it is not for everyone, it is a fun, rewarding, and exciting way to spend your spare time. The most notable drawback is that it isn’t cheap, so you’ll want to plan for it.
For a while now, the university of Michigan has hosted its own version of an escape room. In addition to a real-life counterpart, the university also offers students an immersive online version. Those students can opt to solve the puzzle by themselves or in teams of up to five. To date, more than 50 students have completed the challenge.
The Fiske Guide
The Fiske Guide to college life has been a reliable resource for college-bound students for almost forty years. It is the brainchild of former New York Times education editor Edward B. Fiske. This college guide provides information on more than 300 colleges and universities.
In addition to providing information on academics, the guide also rates schools on a variety of other factors, including social life, student-athlete programs, student housing, dining services, campus climate, and more. Moreover, it provides a mini guide to the college search process.
One of the most useful features of the Fiske Guide is its comprehensive description of the campus environment. It includes details about the quality of housing and food services on campus, as well as interviews with current students and staff members.
A bet between God and Mephistopheles for the soul of Faust
The bet between God and Mephistopheles for the soul of Faust is a story about two forces of good and evil. It is an interesting story, which challenges the traditional Christian view of the Devil as a destructive force.
In Faust, God brings Faust into the world to show a different way to live. He promises to lead him down the road that leads to perfection. But the bet also raises the question of whether God can be human.
Unlike the Protestant Reformation God, Goethe’s God is a God of human nature. His God is tolerant and has faith in humanity.
The Silver Lining in the Darkest of Clouds
One of my favorite things to read about is the college experience. For instance, I have a friend who is a sophomore in college and I’ve been following her blog for a couple of months. I’ve found her blog to be quite refreshing – especially since her writing style is very un-cliché – and she’s a good source of advice. Aside from being a friend, she’s also a great writer! Whenever she starts writing something, I start reading her blog like a hawk! It’s like a mini therapy session – albeit a kinder and gentler one!
The 5-Ingredient College Cookbook
The 5-Ingredient College Cookbook is the best cookbook a college student can own. It is packed with recipes that will make any aspiring chef a raging fan, while proving that good food doesn’t have to be expensive. Using just 5 ingredients, you can whip up a feast that will leave you feeling full and satisfied for hours. This isn’t a bad thing, as college students can get pretty hungry these days. With a little forethought and planning, you can get out of the dorm room in style and still keep your bank account intact.

Richard Papen is an American man from California. He transfers to a small liberal arts college in New England to study ancient Greek. His parents are not pleased with the move. However, he is drawn to the school’s visual appeal.

College novels are a great way to get into the spirit of college life. They can give you a glimpse into the application process, the freshman year and the transition from high school to university. These books are also a great way to relive memories of your own time in college.
Tam Lin by Pamela Dean is a classic fantasy novel that is set at a fictional Midwestern liberal arts college. The book is a retelling of a Scottish legend. It is also subtly updated.
The President of the School is a satirical look at the college experience. The story is told from multiple points of view. Several characters are obsessed with one thing or another, and eventually their obsessions become a coverup.
