Whether you choose to have a real conversation with your favorite professor, talk to a local elder, speak up about an issue on campus – or all three – you’ll find plenty of good ideas for taking your college experience far beyond exams and exhausted studying with 77 Things You Absolutely Have to Do Before You Finish College.

One thought on “77 Things You Absolutely Have to do Before You Finish College, by Halley Bondy (book review)

  1. Sounds like a fun read for college students or those heading that way. One of the things I took great advantage of when I was in college was taking utmost advantage of the university libraries. I miss having that access. Also the many programs of speakers and entertainers that are available to students at the university are often free or inexpensive and well worth checking out.
