The world is always changing. And so are the concerns and interests of young women in college. We thought about this a lot when we working on our 4th edition of our best-selling guidebook to college, UChic: College Girls’ Real Advice for Your First Year (And Beyond!)
For this new edition, we totally revamped the cover design for this book. But we also invested a serious amount of time in picking topics that are relevant to young women in college today.
For instance, with the cost of college continuing to skyrocket with young graduates ending up with over $30,000 in student loan debt, we have an entire new section on how to fund your extracurricular goals and activities that as a brand we are committed to funding.
And as always, we were inspired by the contributors’ essays. We want to thank and congratulate the writers for sharing their candid advice and personal stories. Meet our new contributors:
