A Lifeline for
Community College Students

Suze Orman's current advice to college students?  Start your education at a local community college and then transfer to a four year university.  The open-access nature of community college makes it a beacon of light for students who traditionally are not able to achieve or afford a university education.

While community colleges give financially disadvantaged students a chance to open the door to education, simply walking through that door is not enough.  Once there, many students feel completely alone on their journey.

Although the 8 million students enrolled in community colleges make up more than 44% of U.S. undergraduates, they are often left out of the college success conversation.  USA Today College and other media outlets have only begun to realize that community college students are just as hungry as traditional four-year college students to read, connect, and gather tips for success.

Community College  Success
How to finish with Friends,
Scholarships, Internships
and the Career of Your Dreams

Isa Adney cried like a little girl on her first day of community college.  Like many other students, she didn't want to be there.  But two years later she found herself crying again -- this time when the school president announced she'd won the $110,000 Jack Kent Cooke scholarship.

How did she do it?  What was her secret?  The key to Isa's success wasn't money, genius, or luck: it was people.  "The secret to your success," says Adney in COMMUNITY COLLEGE SUCCESS: How to Finish with Friends, Scholarships, Internships and the Career of Your Dreams, "is the people you meet in community college who will change your life.  No matter how technological our world gets, the best opportunities in life will always happen through people."

COMMUNITY COLLEGE SUCCESS give students the strategic and motivational tools to be their own advocates and fight for their education and their dreams.  The many topics inside this book include:

Why drive-through education is not enough.
Why 50% of community college students aren't graduating with a degree and how students can ensure they complete their degrees.
Why joining college clubs is one of the smartest moves you'll make in college.
Why you must choose a college major ASAP.  Adney shows how to find the major that's right for you.
What to do on the first day of class to make your professors take notice of you.
Why a professional mentor is essential to success and how to find one.
The best way to discover your perfect career (and avoid a miserable one).
How to gain a foothold in the hidden job market -- even during a recession.
   

COMMUNITY COLLEGE SUCCESS  is a must-read for all community college students looking to make the most of their college experience and get their careers on the fast track during these economically challenging times.


While community colleges give first-generation students a chance to open the door to education, simply walking through that door is not enough.  Once there, many students feel completely alone.  As members of a rapidly growing population, these students are in desperate need of practical, friendly, and useful resource.

COMMUNITY COLLEGE SUCCESS is a must-read for all students who want to make the most of their college experience and get their careers on the fast track during economically challenging times.  Isa Adney offers her readers the strategic and motivational tools to be their own advocates and fight for their education and their dreams.
