Press Coverage of The College Bucket List

“Another good read for the new high school graduate… This book lists out 101 fun things to do before graduating college. Many of these suggestions are both educationally and socially centered in order to provide a great balance between fun and work while getting educated.” — “Never Stop Learning,” Mom Does Reviews, June 2017

“Organized under nine headings (from cultivating school spirit to “things not to tell Mom or Grandma”), each item is a breezy one-or-two-page chapter, with plenty of exclamation points, all with a common purpose: ‘We are a big proponent of getting out of your comfort zone and trying new experiences, especially during your college years.'” — “Chico State alumni give students bucket list to complete before graduation,” Chico Enterprise-Record, May 2017

“There is so much more to college than the things you will learn in the classroom. College is also about your experiences. This books share 101 ideas to make memorable experiences outside the classroom.” — “Book Ideas for High School Graduates Heading to College in the Fall,” JVL College Counseling, May 2017

“This book is a great present for a student heading off to college. It is broken down into sections like Things You’ll Treasure Years From Now, Things to Do For Your Health and Things to Do With Your Friends That You’ll Never Forget. Some of the suggestions are kind of obvious like Explore Your Campus and Create a Resume. Other ones are good ideas that students might not think of on their own like Attempt to Learn a Different Language and Send a Friend a Care Package.” — “Tip for Tuesday: Books,” Says Me Says Mom, March 2017

“I was surprised to find that I had done a good amount of the things listed on the bucket list in my three years as an undergrad, but I was even more surprised to find things listed that I hadn’t even considered doing and now can’t imagine not doing before I graduate. I now have a little over a year to get a psychic reading, go to a film festival and find a place to watch the sunrise. The charm of The College Bucket List lies in its ability for the reader to flip to any page and begin crossing off things on the list.” — “Just another list book,” The Collegian (Fresno State), February 2017

“This is a great and fun read. I love the set up of the sections and the collegiate fonts used at the start of the sections. It is definitely a great idea as a high school graduation gift, something you leave behind when you move them into their dorm or sent in the first care package.” — “Book Review: The College Bucket List,” Maria’s Space, February 2017
