This year my book tour is taking me to a lot of colleges, and my first piece of advice is to start by defining success for yourself -- by being clear about what you want, what you value and what you are about. But to do that, we need to abandon, or at least mitigate, some of the worst practices of the adult world that students are already mired in: burnout, sleep deprivation, stress and anxiety. This is all the more important because this generation is starting out their adult lives burdened with multiple deficits.
Being a normal college kid that likes to go to bars and parties, I'm pretty well versed in grinding culture. But there are still some things that I fundamentally don't understand about it.
For many people, it is a once-in-a-lifetime educational pursuit. Yet, studying abroad may also improve your chances of gaining acceptance into graduate school. How?
Saving up your hard-earned cash to stash away an emergency fund? Well, it can be a hard sell. Spare cash can be hard to come by, and, after all, taking a vacation is a heck of a lot more fun. Or at least a lot of us seem to think so.

Under the banner of globalism or multiculturalism, American educational institutions are engaged in a tangled and controversial web of international arrangements.
If there's one thing I've learned as president of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), it's that I will always be amazed by the absurd ways colleges try to censor students and faculty. Unfortunately, another school, Bergen Community College (BCC), has amazed me again.

It gets better: more simple, more meaningful, more established, more fulfilling, more STABLE. You'll have fewer fights, cry less tears and make fewer bad decisions. But you'll also have less fun.
After all of the steps forward that Vanderbilt has taken in my four years here, this thread represents one hundred steps backward.
One time, I asked my mom if the fact that my dad called her "woman" bothered her. "No," she replied. "Why would it? I am a woman, after all."
The good news is that we have an invaluable resource that can help deliver the world-class job training that prepares workers for the jobs that need to be filled: our community college system.
Presidential candidates with Hillary's governmental experience do not come around everyday, and we need her profound insight to work towards breaking though the partisan standoffs that seem to characterize current U.S. politics.
The violence that doesn't get much attention in Chicago is the routine and relentless violence against women and girls that occurs every day -- dating violence, date rape, intimate partner violence, stalking.

Like many military members who survive a sexual assault, the process of reporting the rape and seeking some justice was a long, despairing and ultimately fruitless effort.

Sexual Assault On Campus,
It's just as much a rape to take advantage of a classmate who's incapacitated in a dorm room as it is to assault a stranger at gunpoint. I fear that too many students at our colleges and universities think there's a difference.
When I was little, I hated a lot of things, but most of all I hated math. By extension, I disliked anything that stank of equations: physics, chemistry, technology, engineering. And then something changed.
Given the potential risk of an ongoing diplomatic feud between these two countries, the U.S. should continue its role as peacemaker.
Napoleon's definition of a military genius was "The man who can do the average thing when all those around him are going crazy." Rich people are similar. They remain normal when everyone else can't.
Money Saving Tips,
Saving For Retirement,
I didn't want to work the next five, 10, or 30 years of my life and have nothing to show for it. I started to venture outside my comfort zone and aggressively learn and invest moderately. That's not to say I have a grand portfolio, but I've definitely put myself in a position to succeed.
