After a roller-coaster undergraduate experience, a couple of masters degrees and an uninspiring advertising career, Mike Metzler ventured into teaching where he has found his bliss and earned praise from every corner. Now, having taught nearly two decades of high school and college combined, Mike has learned a few things about the challenging transition from high school to college life, and he’s eager to share his insights in Carpe College!

A native Chicagoan, Mike picked up stakes and spent seven years on a Minnesota farm while his kids were younger. Now his family resides in upstate New York, where Mike teaches, plays pick-up hoops, guitar, and baseball for old(er) guys. Oh yeah… and he invented a drink called the “Grape & Granny.”

So, as I was writing this book, it was just like having a conversation with my students, and that was a very enjoyable experience. I could use a conversational tone, I could get deep and serious or add a bit of levity, I could serve up questions that require some introspection on the part of the reader... all those wonderful things I like about being with my students manifested themselves in the writing of this book. It's become an extension of my teaching self, and I hope the book is received as such.(less)

“It’s YOUR journey. Ask yourself who you are, where you want to go, and how you’d like to get there. Graciously accept advice from everyone, but don’t look left and right and wonder why you’re not taking the path of your peers. Enjoy the path you’re on and make the most of it. Carpe College!”
Michael Metzler, Carpe College! Seize Your Whole College Experience

“For this very short time in your life, and possibly never again, you will be given a very unique gift: a supremely rich environment with ample time, space, safety and people to explore whatever interests you intensely, to push yourself, to make mistakes and recover from them, and to live as deeply as you'd like in the hope of finding yourself or, at least, the beginnings of yourself.

Such an opportunity may never present itself again. So, embrace it and.... Carpe College!”
Michael Metzler, Carpe College! Seize Your Whole College Experience
