For courses in First-Year Orientation, Student Success, Study Skills, Extended Orientation, Freshman Year Experience.

About Your Authors: Robert M. Sherfield, Ph.D.Robert Sherfield has been teaching public speaking, theatre, and student success and working with first-year orientation programs for over 25 years. Currently, he is a professor at the Community College of Southern Nevada, teaching student success, technical writing, public speaking, and drama. An award-winning educator, Robb was named Educator of the Year at the Community College of Southern Nevada. He twice received the Distinguished Teacher of the Year Award from the University of South Carolina Union, and has received numerous other awards and nominations for outstanding classroom instruction and advisement. Robb's extensive work with student success programs includes experience with the design and implementation of these programs-including one program that was presented at the International Conference on the First-Year Experience in Newcastle upon Tyne, England. He has conducted faculty development keynotes and workshops at over 250 institutions of higher education across America. He has spoken in 42 states and several foreign countries. In addition to his coauthorship of Cornerstone: Building on Your Best, he has also coauthored Roadways to Success (Prentice Hall, 2001), the trade book 365 Things I Learned in College (Allyn & Bacon, 1996), Capstone: Succeeding Beyond College (Prentice Hall, 2001), Case Studies for the First Year: An Odyssey into Critical Thinking and Problem Solving (Prentice Hall, 2004), The Everything (R)Self-Esteem Book (Adams Media, 2004), and Cornerstone: Building On Your Best for Career Success (Prentice Hall, 2006). Robb's interest in student success began with his own first year in college. Low SAT scores and a low high school ranking denied him entrance into college. With the help of a success program, Robb was granted entrance into college, and went on to earn five college degrees, including a doctorate. He has always been interested in the social, academic, and cultural development of students, and sees this book as his way to contribute to the positive development of first-year students across the nation.
