Engelken writes guidebook to college life
Dr. Robert Engelken, Engineering, has written a book, "How to (Not) Fall Flat on Your Face in College: Where the
Nose Meets the Grindstone or the
the Floor." From Trafford Publishing, the 516-page
personal guidebook for students explores candidly how students can
avoid numerous pitfalls leading to mediocrity or failure in college,
strategies that star college students use to excel, and strategies
that high school students can use to prepare solidly for college.
The book also frankly discusses self-definition, purpose, character,
cause and effect, investment in the future, work ethic, social
factors, and numerous other issues that frequently influence college success. The book is currently being distributed by www.trafford.com, Amazon.com, and chapters.indigo.ca.
