Teaching Students About Services: A Course Description.
Bowles, James K.; Schriver, Deborah M.
This paper addresses the problem of student retention faced by colleges and universities through the presentation of a university course, the University Life Seminar. The seminar is described as a program designed to help entering students cope with various aspects of the academic environment, specifically human relations, academic decision-making, study skills, career decision-making skills, and experience in time management. A historical background of the course is given and the evolution of the course into a seminar on university living is described. The five course sessions are presented, cost and time investments are discussed, and the course evaluation results are reported. (NRB)
