Hey guys!

We’ve decided to publish a new style article this month to see what you think of it.

Once a month we’re going to be making a roundup of articles about college, school, and studying that I think you should read. Then I’ll give my thoughts.

Please let me know what you think!

Without further ado:

Life After College

Smart Student Secrets is a study blog but what attracted me to it was how much it broke the traditional mold. People will tell you that skipping or putting off college is the end of the world. “You’ll never go back,” they’ll tell you but as Aaron put it:

“If you don’t go back to college then you probably shouldn’t have gone to college in the first place.” College isn’t the only path through life. It’s just the convenient box people try to put you in. No one will get in trouble recommending you go to college.

Imagine a college counselor recommending a student go into the military. Now imagine a parent’s response. That’s just a risky move for a counselor to make.

Imagine a college counselor recommending a student skip college. Again, imagine a parent’s response.

The world forgives counselors for blindly recommending college. The counselor barely has a choice.

In this article, Morgan tells her story and reminds you what’s really important in life.

How To Decipher A Financial Aid Letter

Okay… I know this might not seem like the most fun article in the world but I promise you, it’s worth it.

College is one of the biggest expenses of your life! The costs matter.

I know why most people don’t dig in too deep with the financials. (I’ll admit it. I didn’t dig in when I first went to college either.)

It’s all so confusing! It’s almost like they’re trying to make you throw your money at them blindly regardless of results hoping you won’t ask too many questions… 😛 Almost… I’m not quite the cynical (yet.)

Learn this stuff. This is a great article that can help you make the best decision for you.

You Are Enough

This article brought me back to freshman year. It’s a great read for anyone getting ready for their first year in college.

There are going to be rough times in college but they get better. You’re surrounded by other people but you’ll still find yourself lonely and longing for the familiar. I totally agree about the missing mom when you’re sick thing.

Fortunately, it doesn’t always stay that way and a little bit of waiting will get you farther than all that doubt and fear.

How To Live With Roommates

One of the toughest parts of the transition to college is learning to share a dorm room with someone you’ve never met before. You don’t know what to expect. It’s impossible to prepare for.

What if your roommate is mean?
What if your roommate is loud?
Oh no… what if your roommate smells funny!?

Don’t freak out too much. I understand why you would. Let the smooth sounds of Thomas’ podcast relax you a little. You’ll learn a lot and you’ll feel better for it.

Well… unless your roommate smells…

April 2017 Kay’s Study Roundup

Lets start with one email…

I want to tell you the stories, the strategies, and the secrets I used to get near the top of my class. (And, this comes from the guy that almost failed an art class. Thankfully – I learned a few things since then.)

My name is Aaron.

Less than once a day, I send emails to students that want to improve their grades and their lives. (Sign up takes a couple extra emails.)

I tell stories and we all share what we know. (Warning: I’m also an author – and I’m not shy about recommending my books. No surprises here.)

One email can give you the one idea you need to change your life.

That’s why I do this. And that’s why you should sign up and verify your email.

(Don’t worry. Your info will not be shared. I make my living selling books. Not personal info.)

– Aaron
