The author describes every detail of the collegiate process, and provides students with the guidance they need to be successful. He carefully describes his own experiences, as a student and a professor, and informs students of the common pitfalls that plague many minorities as they head off to obtain higher education. About the Author Dr. Boyce D. Watkins is a professor of Finance at Syracuse University.

He then went on to become the first African American faculty member in the history of the Syracuse University Department of Finance.
