For courses in Freshman Orientation/Student Success/Freshman Composition. This anthology of imaginative literature-by student as well as professional writers-contains stories, poems, drama, essays, letters, and memoirs about all aspects of college life in order to motivate students, especially first year students, to read, discuss, write, and think critically about the problems and challenges of succeeding in college.

Higher Learning presents historical and cultural diversity which offers students a broader context in which to appreciate and understand the college experience. It appeals to students and teachers because it is written from their point of view, and allows students to see how their individual experiences fit into the culturally and historically diverse traditions and perspectives of university life. Significant changes in the third edition include: 18 new , diverse readings, 3 Research papers on timely topics, 21 student-written pieces, nearly 20 "First Generation" authors, examples class-tested writing assignments, and student responses to readings.

This text keeps getting better and better. A definite strength seems to be the addition of the student responses to some of the readings. First-year students especially need to see how their peers engage with a topic and present their ideas on it. A second strength are the updated selections-new movie/video listings and websites!!! My students are going to love these!

-Jennifer Rosti, Roanoke College

This text first and foremost is culturally and in every way diverse, which is something that many first year experience texts do not take into account. The single theme of the student experience is great and all of the many topics therein are relevant.

-Susan Quarell, CUNY Lehman College

(This book) gives effective snapshots into the lives of college students.-Andrea Berta, The University of Texas at El Paso

"I really enjoyed the narratives in this text. In fact, this has been my favorite reviewed text thus far....Kudos to the authors and editors for a job well done."-Elisa Michals, Sacramento State University
