Making College a Success by Assessing and Navigating Candidates' Study Habits
Gentry, Ruben
Research in Higher Education Journal, v18 Dec 2012
In an ideal world colleges would recruit and admit the "right" students and there would be no doubt about their success. But even in a less than ideal world, it is incumbent upon professors to ensure that students who do come to them experience success to the greatest extent possible. This capstone educational adventure offers immeasurable benefits to the individual student and to society. The individual is prepared for a chosen career that leads to a quality and productive life. Society is enhanced by any worthwhile contributions of the individual. However, college is expensive and requires untold demands of students. To be a success in college, students must make necessary financial arrangements and establish good study habits as they pursue a degree. This manuscript provides a snapshot of the crucial elements for college success. It also provides data on a select group of college students' study habits and how they may be navigated to help ensure success in college. A closer look at the candidates and their study habits informs the profession about possible avenues for enhanced success.
