Attending an undergraduate institution in the United States is one of the most exciting and unique experiences in college students' lives. Although students have only spent several years in college, it has strong impacts that may last a lifetime. Strong institutional commitment, through its investment and allocation of various resources, is a necessary condition to enhance student learning and development. Student satisfaction is a good predictor of student success and retention at the college level. Collectively, institutional characteristics are a major factor that determines student success, retention, and graduation.
