Harrington, Charles F.; Lindy, Ingrid E.
Journal of College Student Retention, v1 n1 p13-22 1999
In a study of college students' experiences at a public, four-year comprehensive university, 10 students took photographs representative of their impressions of the university and discussed the underlying themes of the photographs in focus-group interviews. Several primary themes emerged, including perceptions about the physical environment, interactions with faculty and other students, student support services, and career counseling. (Author/MSE)
