As a result, Adam became interested in providing a comprehensive guide to answer these questions—and many more. In The Best Four Years, Adam uses his own experiences from college and lessons learned on his speaking circuit to examine and explain the many aspects (and surprises) of college life, including:
· the transition to life away from home
· the ins and outs of a tight budget
· the necessity of scheduling
· the importance of time off
· the subtleties of social life, and much more.
Adam offers students motivation and direction as they tackle what could be the best four years of their lives.
A celebrated keynote speaker, Shepard is also available to come and speak on campuses. His personality—which shines through in both his writing and speaking—makes him an ideal choice for First Year Experience programs, convocations, and student programming. His youthful exuberance and dedication to his audience is apparent in the way he connects with those he is speaking to. For a sample of Adam in action, please watch the video below:
