The Black Girl’s Guide To College Success provides readers with everything they need to be successful in college, from maintaining a high GPA from the start and getting summer internships every summer to respecting one’s self while in relationships and combating feelings of inferiority that may surface based on race and/or gender. Too often black students learn how to succeed in college through a terrible game of trial and error. Finally, there is one condensed resource that provides readers with all the “I wish I had known that before going to college” advice based on the experience of one that has traveled the same exact path.

Excerpt

Congratulations! You made it! You aced your SAT’s, wrote an amazing college essay, depleted your parent's savings account with outrageously high application fees, and have miraculously packed your entire life into a minivan. You have stocked up on a life time supply of ramen noodles, have said your heartfelt goodbyes to family and friends, and now you are here…College.

The Black Girl's Guide to College Success: What No One REALLY Tells You About College That You MUST Know will help you to navigate those areas that are not on the university website or in one of the gazillion fliers they handed out to you at orientation. I was just in your shoes a few years ago, and the good news is that I made it out successfully. Although every college student should have fun, study daily, maintain a high grade point average (GPA) from the start, and several other tips I share throughout this book, many black girls find out how to succeed in college through a terrible game of trial and error.

If you ask the common person, "How do I succeed in college?" you might get the classic response… "Study and get good grades!" This response still leaves you wondering… How do I study? And if I just study, does that guarantee I'll get good grades? How often do I have to study? Is this the magic formula for success? I thought people did more in college than just study, like get involved in organizations and study abroad?

Much of the information I present is "common knowledge" for some; however, in the realm of higher education, blacks are still lagging. It's important that we all do our part to assist in reducing that gap. Consider this book to be your life jacket -- providing you with the information you need BEFORE you take the leap into college. I don't want you to become one of the thousands of black women that say "I wish someone had told me that information before I went to college."
