About The Guide
NYC Student Guide, a new guide to New York City, published by Campus Clipper, is now available for students hoping to take advantage of the city’s famously vibrant culture. Written by both native New Yorkers and more recent arrivals that have thrived in the midst of the city’s high expenses and quick pace, the guide contains over 30 short pieces covering topics especially pertinent to college students adjusting to adulthood in the city. Sections such as fashion, food, health, and jobs offer advice on how to manage the demands of school while also exploring New York’s various neighborhoods.
Each of the articles is based on the author’s experiences as a student in New York. Easily marked sections and maps reveal local stores and restaurants within a student price range. Advice on how to quell roommate conflict or find the perfect ice cream cone is all based on and interspersed with the first-hand experiences of the writers.
Far from simply administering advice, NYC Student Guide’s contributing authors craft their articles as reflections of their growth and the city’s influence on how they live now. The book also contains short profiles of the authors that document outside projects they are involved with. The guide proves that students are capable of not only surviving in New York, but can establish a place for themselves in the fields that interest them.
Recent college grad and new to New York City, blogger Ashley Teal shares her thoughts about the Campus Clipper Guidebook for students in New York:
“We all know the Campus Clipper to be a distributor of life saving coupons for students, and now they’ve added on some quirky and helpful editorials to the delicious little magazine, Student Maximus. Most recently, Campus Clipper is announcing the release of its book NYC Student Guide Book. The guide is filled with articles for the students, by the students, with indispensible advice for living in the big city. Not only does it discuss cooking, eating, subway etiquette, roommates, relationships, and a myriad of other essential topics, but it also offers directions to hidden clubs and bars, and the best places to eat vegan and gluten free. The candor of the student writing is astounding, unfettered by major media sources and political backers. There’s no agenda other than giving students what they want while simultaneously supporting their dreams. The NYC Guide Book is the best thing next to fiction to pick up and read on the train to class. Readers can live vicariously through other student’s writing, or they can find a way to create their own adventures and stories by seeking out the recommended places in the guide. The guide book is a great tool for students that every parent or friend should buy for a newly transplanted NYC student.”
