Short and to-the-point, chapters are personable, relatable, and filled with foundational advice that provides guidance for Christian college kids no matter where they're going to school or what their major is. 120 pages, hardcover.
There's more to college than classes, credits, and a nonstop social life. It's more than getting a degree to improve one's job prospects. College is a time where students develop into the adults they will be for the rest of their lives, a time to explore the big questions about life and human destiny, a time when they form their character and faith.
The perfect gift for high school graduation, Make College Count helps students make the most of their time in college. It encourages young people to ask important questions of themselves, such as
Why are you going to college?
What kind of person do you want to be?
How do you want your life to influence others?
With whom will you surround yourself?
What do you believe?
