A completely revised and updated values-based guide to navigating the first year of college that speaks to college students in their own language and offers practical tools that readers need to keep from drinking, sleeping, or skipping their way out of college. In the four years since its initial publication, THE FRESHMAN SURVIVAL GUIDE has helped thousands of first year students make a successful transition to college life. However, much has changed on campuses. The explosion of technology, ubiquity of social media, and culture changes have all added new layers of complexity to the leap from high school to college. THE FRESHMAN SURVIVAL GUIDE's updated edition features new research and advice on issues such as mental health, sexual assault, and finding balance. It also features expanded sections on dating, money management, and an increased focus on how the over 1.5 million incoming freshman can prepare themselves for the biggest change they've encountered in their lives: heading off to college.

Ruth Ozeki erkundet, was es heißt, in diesem Augenblick, genau jetzt, ein Mensch zu sein – »bezaubernd, klug und herzzerreißend« (Junot Díaz). »Hallo! Ich heiße Nao, und ich bin ein Zeitwesen. Weißt du, was ein Zeitwesen ist? Wenn du einen Moment hast, erzähl ich es dir.« So beginnt das Tagebuch des japanischen Teenagers Nao, das eines Tages am Strand einer kanadischen Pazifikinsel angespült wird. Nao schreibt von Einsamkeit und Mobbing, vom depressiven Vater, von ihrer schillernden Urgroßmutter Jiko und den Geheimnissen des Zen. Die Autorin Ruth, die das Tagebuch gefunden hat, ist bald wie gebannt von Naos Notizen und beginnt zugleich um ihr Leben zu fürchten – hat Nao letztlich Selbstmord begangen? Ist sie im Tsunami gestorben? Die Suche nach Antworten gerät für Ruth zu einer magischen Reise durch die Gegenwart, die am Ende auch den Blick auf ihr eigenes Leben verwandelt.
