Magallanes, Alfred – Community College Journal of Research and Practice, 2012
I spent the first two years of college at a two-year community in southern California. I had very sheltered high school experience, so attending college was exciting for me.

Rosenbaum, James E. – Sociology of Education, 2011
When 89% of high school graduates plan BA degrees, and low-achieving seniors who plan degrees have 80% failure rates, raising already high plans may be a poor strategy for improving college success.
