    Not especially helpful. Save your money and get it from the library.

    3.5 stars. I liked this book and was glad I read it, but I would have liked to see a wider variety of schools that the contributing students came from. I also felt like the headers and what was written in the paragraphs attached to the headers didn't really match sometimes, which was strange and frustrating. There was some good advice, and some advice that wasn't really helpful at all, but overall I would recommend this book to any girl going to college. I'm planning on bringing the book with me 3.5 stars. I liked this book and was glad I read it, but I would have liked to see a wider variety of schools that the contributing students came from.

    This book provided more advice on how to survive college years - the entire life experience - than handling actual college itself. It had many articles on love/hook-ups, how to get internships, etc, which were worthwhile, but not what I was looking for in a book that I thought gave advice for the first year of college. I much preferred "The Naked Roommate" (Cohen). That said, I did enjoy and learn from UChic; its definitely worth a 20-minute flip-through, but save your money.

    Great book on giving advice for girls who are going to start college. I am at my senior year of college and wished I had this book before I even started my freshmen year. It has tips in getting involved in college and extracurricular activities. Also it gives tips on making a study schedule and leaving drinks unattended at a party. This is a great gift to give a girl who is going to start college. I will definitely share this with some of the girls I know who will start school in the fall!

    I wish I would have had this book before I started college. It is full of wonderful advice and anecdotes that will help any girl who is about to start college feel a little less scared and a little more prepared.

    This was a great book! It really helped me with prepping for college and I am excited to see how I fare in the wild and wacky world of college dorms!

    This book was GREAT! Okay, the cover and the title are AWFUL and a real turn-off, but the book, itself, is wonderful! I think every young woman heading to college (and her parents) would do well to read this book. It covers all kinds of subjects from what to pack for school to how to get along with a roommate, how to be respectful of roommates, how to set-up a dorm room - pluses and minuses of other housing, how to stay safe on and off campus, health vs. not healthy relationships, how to get int This book was GREAT!

It also goes into the importance of getting good health care - both physical and mental - while at school and how to go about that. It has all the inside scoop on tons of stuff and really encourages young college women to be knowledgeable and responsible - for themselves and for others - it goes into what to do when your friend is barfing from drinking too much or going off with a guy she shouldn't. All the real life situations are covered well and advice is given from other college students so it isn't an adult preaching. Of course, since it is college students tackling each subject, there are times where you might think, well this could have been written in a more refined manner, but that is part of its appeal - it is in the students' language and gives great tips. I am so glad I read this book and will be giving it to every one I know who is sending a daughter to school! One of the other great things about this book is that you can just read which ever chapters you are interested in out of order - each stands alone - but I would encourage the reader to read the whole book! I originally heard about it from a High School Senior who was heading off to college - she thought it was very helpful. I would warn people that if they read the Kindle edition, there is some kind of glitch where there are many parts that are repeated. You might want to just read the paperback. Again, I realize the cover is hideous, but as they say, "don't judge a book by its cover!" If you are looking for a gift for a High School Junior or Senior, this would be a great gift - or for parents of a girl heading to college. It is definitely written for girls, not boys.

    This book is great! I'm headed off to college this fall, and like everyone else, am nervous. I found this book today and decided to get it. After thumbing through it all night, I do not regret buying this book one bit.

It has tons and tons of detailed information on most everything about adjusting to college, from new study habits to new living habits. It focuses on freshman year, understandably, but it also has a section in the back about post-college life, like landing jobs and getting into graduate school. (This is good for me because I will most likely be going to graduate school.) The book is not too preachy, and does not make college sound as scary as some other sources tend to do.

    This book is amazing! I found it so helpful and interesting. It would especially be great for someone who has no idea of what to expect in college, but even as a sophomore with an older sister who has graduated, there was information in the book that I hadn't been told before. It definitely gave me some stuff to consider as I'm starting the next school year and helped me develop a better plan. My favorite part was the discussion about majors -- it was really comforting to read about other people This book is amazing! I found it so helpful and interesting.

I would consider this guide a must read for college girls!

    U Chic is definitely the most helpful book for college girls, especially freshmen! I've found myself using this book as a quick reference for how to handle roommate negotiations to ways to stay healthy in college to time management guides. This book is so relatable, it feels like one of my friends giving me advice in written form. This would be a great gift for any college student, and it would also be a great investment for you to have on hand!

    It was a thorough book about the heterosexual girl's experience in college. Brief but to the point. I would have suggested having more references in the index than just telling people to go to the website. Brought up many topics that a every student should know and over all it was an easy read.

    When I get nervous about things, I read. So when I was getting ready for college, I bought quite a few books about the freshman year, what to expect, and moving out. This is a great book and the knowledge given can be used throughout all of the college experience.

    A lot of the information in this book can be found in other books or blogs -- it doesn't share a lot of new information on college life, and half of what it shares is just common sense. If you read this book, I'd say you'd probably learn the most from chapters 10-12.

    Received this as a graduation gift. A fun read with a lot of great info on college, especially what it's like to be in a sorority which I'm thinking about next year.

    I won this edition from a Goodreads giveaway. I love this book because it covers so many topics. From how sharing space to technology essentials, getting involved and sororities, love life and money matters, and staying healthy physically as well as mentally. A lot is covered in this book. I will definitely be advising my junior senior girls to take a look at it and hopefully read it cover to cover.
