ARH Presents Harlan Cohen: "The Naked Truth about Life in College!"

Harlan Cohen has helped millions of students make the transition to life in college. He knows what it’s like to be in an unfamiliar place, surrounded by unfamiliar people, experiencing unfamiliar feelings.  Harlan’s first year in college was NOTHING like he expected.  His roommate moved out the first week, he didn’t get into a fraternity with all his “new” friends, and his high school girlfriend dumped him.  No one told him that college can be uncomfortable at times.  No one told him how to create the VERY BEST college experience. As a result, he transferred following his first year.  What he learned next is what he shares with audiences around the world.

Harlan takes the best from his New York Timesbestselling book on college life, The Naked Roommate: And 107 Other Issues You Might Run Into in College, and offers students everything they need to know to create the very best college experience. Harlan uses his trademark humor, personal anecdotes, facts, stats, live music, and audience interaction to help students get comfortable with the uncomfortable. He even takes text messages LIVE during his event.
