Written by George R. Szews



Paperback book -- 64 pages -- May 2008








This is the perfect book for the Catholic high school graduate or college freshman, preparing them for the new world of higher education. It's a compact book, formatted in small chunks, and an overall quick read: a book that students will really read. In fact, they will have a hard time putting it down, and will probably read it in one sitting.

Written by campus minister George Szews, this book addresses practical issues from loneliness and sex to encountering people from other faith traditions and discovering one's calling. The book presents five challenges that college students are sure to face during their time on campus, and five opportunities to experience startling, life-affirming examples of faith.

Whether your college-bound Catholic is attending a large university or a small, private school, this book can help prepare them for a smooth transition into adulthood, and help keep their transition firmly rooted in the Catholic faith.


5 challenges:
  • The practice and knowledge of your Catholicism will be tested.
  • Your moral center will be tested.
  • The quality and style of your life will be tested.
  • Your assumptions about family and friends will be tested.
  • There will be surprises.
5 opportunities:
  • To claim your Catholicism and grow in your faith.
  • To contribute to the common good.
  • To explore the rich diversity of others.
  • To establish an adult relationship with yourself and others.
  • To respond to problems and crises with character, thoughtfulness and faith.



GEORGE R. SZEWS was born and raised in a small town of 312 people, 7 bars, and 1 Catholic Church. He is pastor of the Newman Parish in Eau Claire, WI, a campus ministry parish in the Diocese of La Crosse, and has written several books for ACTA and Liturgical Press.
