College Choice as a Linking Variable between Recruitment and Retention.
Villella, Edward F.; Hu, Michael
Journal of Marketing for Higher Education, v3 n1 p79-88 1990
A study of 740 first-year university students found a strong positive correlation between students' college choice, subsequent expectations of the institution, and intent to stay at or leave the university. It is suggested that processes occurring before matriculation are as significant as the college social and academic environment or external forces in student retention. (MSE)
