Preparing Rural Students for Large Colleges and Universities
Guiffrida, Douglas A.
Journal of School Counseling, v6 n14 2008
Results of this review of college student retention research suggest that students from rural communities face additional challenges adjusting to large colleges and universities compared to students from urban and suburban areas. Research that describes the additional challenges faced by rural students while transitioning to large institutions is presented. Implications are provided to assist rural school counselors in helping their students select colleges that meet their needs and prepare for their experiences at large colleges and universities.
