Responding to the Concerns of Student-Athletes Enrolled in a First-Year Experience Course
Higbee, Jeanne L.; Schultz, Jennifer L.
Contemporary Issues in Education Research, v6 n2 p155-162 2013
This paper summarizes results of a study of 105 student-athletes enrolled in a first-year experience course. Students were asked, "What is the biggest unanswered question you have about college?" Results indicated that students' most burning questions were related to academics; relatively few student responses were directly related to being a student-athlete. Discussion of the findings includes designing first-year experience courses to respond to students' concerns.
