Surviving College: The Blueprint is a comprehensive textbook created to teach incoming students how to navigate the perils of college by using the collective experiences of others. Using case studies as its pedagogical foundation, Surviving College teaches students important life-lessons that are essential to their academic success. Using this dynamic textbook, students learn a range of skills to include: how to navigate the college culture, how to address homesickness, how to balance work/school/family responsibilities, how to engage instructors, how to avoid the traps of social media, how to manage stress and expectations, how to reconcile leaving your family and starting over, time management, study skills, how to engage and accept cultural diversity, partying and substance abuse, how to pay for college – financial aid – grants – scholarships, and so many other important topics.
Surviving the Crossroads (STC) is a comprehensive, skills-based curriculum that teaches students invaluable lessons inside and outside the classroom. We believe that by focusing on skills rather than content construction, students will be able to transfer principles learned during the assignments and apply them to any academic or non-academic setting.
The fundamental premise of STC is predicated on three major assumptions: (1) if we enhance the tools students use to make better decisions, students will make better choices inside and outside the classroom; (2) if students feel validated and inspired to learn, they will transition from consumers of information to producers of knowledge; and (3) if we can infuse compassion within the delivery of content, students will transition from dependent to independent self-directed learners.
We all encounter crossroads in our lives; the real question is – what do we do when we get there? Crossroads are the intersections where opportunity meets adversity. These critical moments define our character and determine our future. One decision can lead to a lifetime of prosperity or a lifetime of pain. If only there was a roadmap to help us navigate our paths. If only there was a blueprint to assist us when we meet our crossroad.
Well, search no more. Crossroads is that blueprint. Crossroads is a roadmap that teaches you how to navigate life’s challenges while building a future of success. Crossroads takes you on a journey into the lives of ordinary people who had to face extraordinary circumstances. Crossroads teaches you how to navigate life’s ups and downs and how to create a life of success while living in despair.
In the absence of role models and mentors to seek for guidance, decisions at the crossroads have the potential to be life-altering. Many of these decisions result in life or death consequences. At the crossroads, life gives us three possible paths: Success, Despair, and Death. Crossroads takes you on a journey into each of these paths, giving you the unique ability to stand at the top of your path and catch a glimpse of what it holds for your future.
