We’re so proud of our Fil-Am authors. Traci Maynigo, an alumna of McLean’s Langley High School and daughter of Ben and Tina Maynigo, this recent college graduate from Yale has written a good guide for college students—from a packing checklist (hangers, theme-party costumes) to laundry instructions to party-tune suggestions to tips on formatting term-paper titles. Interspersed are amusing anecdotes from students: roommate horror stories, all-night studying disasters and accounts of dating debacles.
