Surviving School: 3 Great Student Books

Looking for a bit of reading material that is going to really add to your student life? Whether that be through an informative guide of your future workplace and handling the issues of money, or simply a warm-hearted and wholly innocent example of storytelling, these book recommendations below are a must-read for any student out there.

#1 Occupational Outlook Handbook

The first book every college student should read is the Bureau of Labor Statistic’s Occupational Outlook Handbook. People go to college so they can learn things that will help them get a better job in the future. But, all too often young people graduate college mired in a lifetime of student debt with little to no prospect of better employment.

But, a little research up front with the Occupational Outlook Handbook will help students avoid a lifetime of debt. With the Handbook they’ll understand how much the jobs in their discipline will pay, what’s the likelihood of getting that type of employment, and the demands of that career.

#2 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People

Every college student should read The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. Let’s face it, going to college means you’re supposed to be a grown-up. But, how exactly to “Grown Up” is a mystery to many young people. In his seminal book, Steven Covey combed the history of success literature, religion, and philosophy to distill the wisdom of millennia into an easy to read users guide for success.

#3 The Little Prince

I'm a college sophomore at the University of Texas at Austin who loves to read-- and just finished her first year of college.

My first year Iread The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery. It's a kids' book, I know! But that's precisely what helped me; its complex message presented in a simple manner made me remember that I don't need to sound flowery or intelligent or pretentious. Just myself. It also helped me manage my stress about growing up. College is when it really hits you that your childhood is over, after all.
