Student Characteristics and Collegiate Environments That Contribute to the Overall Satisfaction with Academic Advising among College Students
DeLaRosby, Hal R.
Journal of College Student Retention: Research, Theory & Practice, v19 n2 p145-160 Aug 2017
Academic advising satisfaction is highly correlated with retention in higher education. Thriving Quotient survey responses were collected from undergraduate students at a private, liberal arts college in the Pacific Northwest. Using a multiple regression analysis, this study examined what "student characteristics" and "collegiate environments" affect student satisfaction with academic advising. The results indicate that campus residency, amount of time spent in student-faculty interaction, and the quality of student-faculty interaction are statistically significant factors in academic advising satisfaction.
