Student Success Courses in the Community College: An Exploratory Study of Student Perspectives
O'Gara, Lauren; Mechur Karp, Melinda; Hughes, Katherine L.
Community College Review, v36 n3 p195-218 2009
This study examines student success courses in two urban community colleges. Through analysis of student interview data, we find that such courses are an essential resource for students, in large part because the various benefits reinforce one another and magnify their influence. These benefits include learning about the college, classes, and study skills. In addition, students build important relationships with professors and peers. (Contains 2 tables.)
