Journal of College and University Student Housing, v42 n1 p212-233 2015
College students transitioning to their sophomore year, those transferring to a new institution, and seniors transitioning out of higher education face various challenges and struggles. The literature on the transitions associated with these student populations indicates that they need sustained support in a few key areas that include student and faculty interaction, regular advising and career planning, and fostering a sense of belonging. This article examines the research on sophomores, transfers, and seniors and suggests opportunities for residence life programming that responds to the needs of these students in transition.
