For courses in Orientation to College for Student-Athletes.

Developed and written specifically for student-athletes, this reader-friendly guide offers practical strategies for succeeding in college. Filled with sage and tested advice, the book addresses the most salient academic, personal, and career issues affecting college athletes-from scheduling and time management to maintaining academic motivation and personal well-being. With a meaningful foreword by NCAA President, Myles Brand, the book speaks to the reader from "both sides of the desk" by providing tips from 35 academically successful student-athletes, as well as time-tested advice from two faculty members (the authors) with decades of experience teaching and mentoring college athletes. A valuable resource for anyone entering or soon to enter the world of college athletics, and their advisors, counselors, coaches, and parents, this book uses an inviting format to pack suggestions and tips into practical advice that can guide one's path to success.

"[The] innovation of this book is [that] it takes its own favored constructivist theory and applies it to the way that the field/internship relationship should work."

Carole Bryd, Ph.D.

"The author does an excellent job of organizing and writing sequentially about what student teachers will experience, "normalizing" it, and making it real and relevant to their daily lives as a teach, both in and outside of the classroom."
