The College Dorm Survival Guide offers expert advice and the inside scoop on:

• Choosing the right residence hall for you

• Getting along with your roommate (and handling conflict)

• Bathroom, laundry, and dining hall survival

• Dealing with stress, depression, and safety issues

From avoiding the dreaded Freshman 15 to decorating your space, this informative and funny guide gives experts' advice on everything you need to know to enjoy dorm living to the fullest.
