New book designed to guide Canadian undergrads throughout their education

February 7, 2011

Erin Millar, former national editor for Canadian University Press and founding editor of Maclean's OnCampus, and her husband Ben Coli have published The Canadian Campus Companion, designed to guide an undergraduate student throughout his or her degree. The book features information on areas such as choosing an institution, residence life, costs and budgeting, beating the campus blues, and what to do after graduation. Millar says there are similar guides written in an American context, but nothing that gives Canadian-specific information. Millar hopes students find the book useful. "It's always tough writing for this group," she says. "You want to be smart and funny and hip, but you don't want to be condescending or seem pandering."
