    A FINAL THOUGHT

    “Failure to respond to the changing demographics and characteristics of our students will limit their ability to achieve their educational goals, and it will diminish the quality of education offered by our many and diverse institutions.”

    Upcraft, M.Lee and Stephens, Pamela S.

    “Academic Advising and Today’s Changing Students.”

    In V. N. Gordon and W.F. Habley (eds.), Academic Advising: A Comprehensive Handbook. San Francisco: Jossey-Bass. 2000


    The last word
    THE LAST WORD

    “If students could retain themselves, none of use would have a job.”
