Section 2 contains material which reviews college and university programs designed to meet first-year student needs. Section 3 lists publications that review the extended orientation/college survival course. Section 4 reviews the most widely used texts and source materials for freshman orientation seminars. Section 5 presents research material that assessed the impact of specific campus programs and activities concerning the freshman year. Section 6 presents information on research projects that explored the impact of the college experience, the importance of student involvement, and the essential match between student and institution. Finally, Section 7 presents reports of the issues and implications of the freshman year and the recommendations for changes in undergraduate and freshman education that are now being implemented.
