Resources You Won't Find Anywhere Else: Dr. Granville M. Sawyer, Jr, draws from his 30-plus years in higher education as a college professor and administrator, to give students extraordinary insider information that empowers and encourages them to graduate in four years with better grades and excellent job prospects. His informative and transformative stories about real students and professors have helped more than 10,000 students successfully navigate college. Through "College in Four Years," Dr. Sawyer is now able to share these stories and help more students. Written in the entertaining and accessible tradition of Aesop, he offers 29 actionable and essential "Takeaways" along with proven-to-work tips, worksheets, outlines, techniques and tactics giving more students the opportunity to make every semester count. "College in Four Years" resonates with students - regardless of major course of study or class standing. Less Stress Equals More Success: When a student falls behind in their classes, grades or credits - the stress of catching up, then keeping up, can derail a college career. "College in Four Years" offers resources to help students take control of their college experience. Graduating in Four Years Saves Time and Money: Taking more than four years to graduate wastes time and financial resources and, increases the risk that a student will never graduate. A six year degree costs 150% of a four-year degree; that's $60,000 - $120,000 more in private school tuition or, $18,000 - $44,000 at a public institution. Add to that, two years of lost income and missed professional opportunities. "College in Four Years" equips students with essential tools to help them avoid wasting resources by taking six years to graduate.
