New college students are led to believe that sharing personal information and freely expressing their opinions on social media is expected and their right to free speech. What they fail to understand is that any information they reveal may be used to steal their identity, prevent them from being hired and possibly even get them hurt or killed. It is well known that college is a time for learning, experiencing and growing as a person...but it is little understood that it is also the point in time when students form relationships, political beliefs, attitudes, and habits that will shape them for the rest of their lives. The influence of their friends, teachers and the social and political climate on campus are huge factors in their development - both good and bad. Understanding and learning can help parents assist their sons and daughters avoid future pitfalls and grow up to be successful, productive members of society. There is nothing more important than your personal safety and the safety of your family. Safety has become the highest priority for students, parents, educators and administrators. However, the educational tools and reference guides that contain this essential information for them is lacking since most safety material focuses on the school itself and public safety professionals, not the individual. Today's college students face threats to their personal safety that generations before did not have to deal with. New problems exist in both the digital world and the physical world, and can be harmful or even deadly. Thinking a problem won't happen to you will not make it any less likely. The solution is to be aware of what threats exist, learn how to protect yourself, and know what steps to take should a problem arise to you or around you. You can give your child the most comprehensive resource ever compiled about how to stay safe in both the physical world and digital world. This will help ensure that students are made aware of the various threats to their personal safety that exist both online and offline so they will ultimately be safer during their college years and beyond. The author has worked as an information technology consultant since 1995, a self-defense instructor for over 20 years, and is a former university public safety professional. He is fully qualified to educate students and others based on decades of knowledge that has been distilled into this comprehensive book. Topics include: defining safety concerns safety awareness establishing personal boundaries routines & comfort zones problem roommate(s) bullying, cyberbullying & hazing the dangers of mixing alcohol and energy drinks cyber-security & online safety social media & cell phone safety phishing scams & identity theft active shooter preparedness & defensive actions viruses, malware and ransomware physical threat self-defense / safe dating / sexual harassment alcohol, drugs and prescription medication abuse party, bar & club safety caffeine and energy drinks travel safety - both on campus and semesters abroad credit card and ATM safety dorm room safety - fires, electrical, cooking, outside threats personal safety alarms and apps building confidence & developing a never quit attitude health, fitness, nutrition & hygiene Get the next best thing to being there for your child when they are away from home and your protection.

Today's parents need a guide to colleges and universities where their children can find a strong Catholic presence on campus. In these days, with so many young people falling away from the practice of their faith during college, it is vital for them to find support for their faith during the college years. College is a time of growing and exploring intellectually and experientially. With a strong Catholic presence on campus, students can critically examine and deepen their faith. Catholicism has much to offer especially communion with God, who is love and mercy and the source of all hope, community, wisdom, and a stabilizing guide in life. As both a practicing Catholic and professional college planner, Katherine O'Brien MA CCPS, founder of Celtic College Consultants, has compiled a college guide to meet the needs of practicing Catholics. In Every Catholic's Guide to College she documents the American colleges and universities that have certain supports for Catholic student life on their campus. The Guide includes detailed information about the best US colleges and universities for practicing Catholics, based on the availability of strong support for living and growing in faith on campus. Support includes the presence of a top ranked Newman Center or a Catholic dorm or FOCUS or St. Paul's outreach Catholic missionaries or being listed in the Newman Guide to Choosing a Catholic College. Each college's entry includes basic admissions criteria and financial aid information in addition to information on the academic programs offered and the research centers and institutes associated with the university. Making the Guide easy to use, the colleges and universities are listed in alphabetical order. An index listing the schools by state and another, longer index listing the schools by sport and division (NCAA Division 1, 2, 3, or NAIA) are located at the back of the book. For each institution, the following information is listed: -Address, website, phone number -Number of undergraduate students, percentage male and female -In-state and Out-of-state costs, and % of financial need met, on average, for undergraduates -Athletic Division -Middle 50% range of SAT and ACT scores. If the CLT is accepted, it is noted. -The kinds of degrees, colleges within the universities, undergraduate majors (for most schools), and research centers and institutes hosted by the institution While Every Catholic's Guide to College gives fairly complete information for hopeful undergraduates, aspiring graduate students will also benefit from using the Guide. Both undergraduate and graduate applicants interested in research and/or special topics within their field of study will be significantly aided by the inclusion of lists of research centers and institutes hosted by the colleges and universities. The Guide will serve Catholic families as a great starting point as they search for the best colleges for their children. What People Are Saying about Every Catholic's Guide to College "College should be a time of deepening spiritual and intellectual engagement with one's Catholic faith, yet studies tell us that more Catholics in the U.S. lose their faith during college than at any other time. Katherine O'Brien's new guidebook couldn't come at a better time. "Every Catholic's Guide to Colleges" provides the comprehensive information Catholic students and their parents need to make an informed decision about where to prepare young Catholics for fruitful lives in this world -- and the next." Christopher Currie Director of Institutional Advancement St. Jerome Academy Hyattsville, MD "Katherine, I am so grateful that you have done this work. I hope that it blesses many people discerning college." Fr. Mike Schmitz Chaplain for Newman Catholic Campus Ministries University of Minnesota, Duluth & Director of the Office of Youth Ministry for the Diocese of Duluth
