How to Succeed at College - NPR Life Kit

Lindsey Balbierz for NPRNPR’s Elissa Nadworny talks about how the first year of college is crucial for setting students up for success, laying a strong foundation for the rest of college and beyond. Research shows that if you finish your first year and sign up for the second, you're far more likely to get that degree.  

The three episodes cover everything you need to know to maximize your experience:  The Essentials; How to be Happy; and After College: The Job

 These stories come from Life Kit, NPR's family of podcasts to help make life better — covering everything from exercise to raising kids to making friends.
