Goodnight Dorm Room

By Keith Riegert, Sam Kaplan, Emily Fromm (illustrator)

All the Hilarious Need-to-know Info for Soon-to-Be College Freshmen


College! It’s one of the most amazing experiences life has to offer. But what actually happens there? How do you make the most of four transforming years? What should you expect? And what the heck is a roommate? This book answers the most pressing questions that college-bound high school graduates probably never think to ask. Like: Why should I get to my dorm room early on Day 1? Or is it really a bad idea if I major in archaeology? And how does one use a “washing machine”?


Fully illustrated by talented San Francisco-based artist, Emily Fromm, this book has all the advice and information that every college grad wishes they had gotten before freshman year started.
