The Freshman Year Experience

“.....it is the education of students, their social and intellectual growth, that is the proper goal of retention efforts. It is essential that we recognize the centrality of education to the process of student retention.”

Vincent Tinto - Leaving College


Of special note l.jpg

…...OF SPECIAL NOTE…...

…….though the intentions and commitment with which individuals enter college matter, what goes on after entry matters more. It is the daily interaction of the student with other members of the college in both formal and informal academic and social domains that in large measure determine staying or leaving.

- Vincent Tinto
