Outcome for Project GO Freshmen, Fall 1972.
Analyses of demographic and other variables for 154 Fall 1972 Project GO (a support and recruitment program for minority and low income students) freshmen at Colorado State University found no statistically significant relationships between initial quarter GPA and such variables as high school rank, college entrance scores, family income, attendance or nonattendance at Preview CSU, numbers of units carried fall quarter, or amount and type of financial aid packaging. One significant multiple correlation, the Project GO director's predicted status ranking, accounted for 10 percent of the variance in initial quarter GPA. Discriminant analyses did not demonstrate significant differences on these variables between fall persisters and those students who left CSU for academic and other reasons. Interviews conducted with samples from four freshmen persistence outcome groups and a number of 1973 Project GO seniors suggest numerous points in the CSU environment where minority and low income students feel their needs might be better met.
