College, Covid, and Questions provides tips and advice for both parents and students that are preparing to go to college during these tumultuous times. Why was this an important book for you to write?
The whole Covid experience has turned everyday school upside down. I wanted to try to smooth the path to get to a more normal way of schooling.
Covid hasn’t gone away—and may never go away completely—but hopefully this book can bring normalcy to a person’s college experience than would typically be the case.
What is a common misconception you feel people have about going to college?
The students think everything must have changed a lot since their parents were in school. However, the practical things are much the same, and we all need to know about those.
Keeping track of your health, especially with Covid, is so important. You need to follow the rules. The details have changed, but the bigger-picture issues have stayed the same—such as health, eating, and living quarters.
What were some ideas that were important for you to explore in this book?
With Covid, yes, health has always been a concern, but how does Covid change a person’s approach to maintaining their health?
Some of the latest learning techniques, including virtual and hybrid, have changed things in the classroom setting and so has technology. What does school look like now?
What do you hope is one thing readers take away from your book?
Taking care of all the practical, everyday ins and outs of things will make the entire college experience so much better.

Suzy Beamer Bohnert has freshmen, continuing students and parents covered. In her book, the author talks about college routines, the basics, what every student and parent needs to know and general life in college. This book is timely as the author also talks about the coronavirus pandemic, how it has affected learning institutions and the economy. I enjoyed reading about the author when she talked about the status quo, as she paints the reality in a clear manner and one can get to fully comprehend where she is coming from. College, Covid, and Questions is an informative book that will not only help you choose the right collegiate path, but also help you navigate college life once you are there.
What I loved most about Suzy Bohnert’s writing is how she makes the reader part of her story. Suzy Bohnert is engaging and makes the reader feel like they belong. I appreciate the tonal variation when the author is writing about content to ensure it is relevant to parents and guardians versus the choice of words she uses when addressing students and young readers. Suzy Bohnert is easy to understand and fun to read. Her diction is excellent and the text in the book is clear from the start. This book is like a student manual that can help students navigate new settings and new communities. I have a child currently preparing for college so this book was very relevant to me. I wanted to know what my child could expect in the modern landscape of colleges. There was plenty of highlighting done on my part by the end of the book, as I found so much of this book enlightening and informative.
Starting college is tough, it was tough in my day, I can’t even imagine adding the stress of COVID on top if it all. This is why Suzy Beamer Bohnert’s book is critical to student success. Going to college can be overwhelming, but College, Covid, and Questions brings clarity and order to something that can be distressingly complex. Do yourself a favor, prepare yourself, and grab a copy of this pragmatic and insightful book.
