Chicken Soup for the Soul: Campus Chronicles (Giveaway)


If you have a child heading off to college in the fall, you’re probably starting to realize about now just how short the summers are. Very soon, you’ll be purchasing new items, packing up, and shedding tears as you say good-bye to your child, whether he or she is heading off to college for the first time or the fourth. Now would be a good time to get a copy of Chicken Soup for the Soul: Campus Chronicles for advice and support.

Chicken Soup for the Soul: Campus Chronicles is divided into chapters such as “Overcoming Fear,” “Trying New Things,” “Good Friends… and Not,” “Professors and Mentors,” “Family Bonds,” “Love and Dating,” and “Personal Growth.” The stories in this book about acclimating to college life, resolving roommate squabbles, and surviving difficult classes are great conversation-starters for parents to talk with their teens about being away from home and experiencing college life. A few of the stories you’ll read about include:

- Finding closure in a college romance gone bad
- Dealing with a problematic roommate’s unwanted guests
- Studying abroad
- One student’s struggle to figure out her major
- An unusual spring break trip spent in service to others

You can find Chicken Soup for the Soul: Campus Chronicles on the Chicken Soup website, on Amazon, and at your local bookstore.

I also have a copy of Chicken Soup for the Soul: Campus Chronicles to give away to one lucky winner! To enter to win, just leave a comment below explaining why you would like to win a copy of this book. As always, additional entries can be earned if you:

  1. I would love to win a copy because I am starting college myself in less than two months! It is so exciting, but just a tiny bit scary too and I think these stories could help me get through some of the unavoidable challenges I will face.

  41. I would love to win a copy because It's going to be my second year going to college (which is miles away from home). And Based on my 1st year there's so many things i had to deal with but have yet to know how to deal with and because of that i'm kinda scared to go back. I had to deal with,trying new things, professors and mentors,tryin to survive difficult classes, and my worst experience was the "roommate squabbles". I love the college, but the problems were so overwelming i would break down, but i don't want those things to stop me from becoming successful in life. So i'm really hoping and praying i win a copy. It will help me so much in the future!!!

    Thank you so much for introducing this giveaway!!!
