Advice ranges from classroom courtesies to surviving difficult roommates to many other topics unique to the campus environment. Etiquette is learning to live successfully in community, and this book describes common requirements of the college community. Among the requirements, for example, are the basic social skills of taking meals. Table manners are discussed in an entertaining way. Rather than simply indicating which fork to use, the author provides a humorous contrast between dining in a fine restaurant and chowing-down in the student cafeteria.

Beneath the funny comments, however, lies a wealth of valuable information for students to consider as they form the habits of mind they will take with them beyond the university. For those students who enjoy learning the hard way, a list of sure-fire suggestions for getting oneself ostracized by virtually everyone on campus is included.

Examples of good conduct--and misconduct--are offered for understanding effective ways for relating to faculty, staff, and other students.
