Girls on Campus

From the award-winning author of Son: A Psychopath and His Victims comes the revealing confessions of fourteen college women and their free-swinging experiments outside of the classroom.

If there were a Dean’s List for outspoken candor, the fourteen women featured in The Girls on Campus would be on it. Find out about their “extracurricular activities” as college students in the tumultuous 1970s, in a rebellious environment filled with alcohol, drugs, and sex.

Free from the constraints of parents and home, they came to college to learn about life—and that includes a lot of things you never read about in textbooks. Education doesn’t always end with lectures and study halls as these women come of age during a counterculture movement.

Jack Olsen provides readers with an insightful and personal perspective of life on campus in the 1970s through the eyes of these young women.
