Perez-Felkner, Lara; Ford, Jesse Randall; Zhao, Teng; Anthony, Marshall, Jr.; Harrison, Jamaal Andrew; Rahming, Sophia Glenyse – About Campus, 2020
Seventy-five years after the publication of Abraham Maslow's seminal theory on the importance of basic needs (Maslow, 1943), it is now understood that food, housing, and security also matter for college students' learning and success.

Dawood, Clark – About Campus, 2019
People hate the feeling of uncertainty; if not managed or addressed properly, it can lead to confusion, frustration, or worse--and that is a bad thing. Equally bad, however, is running from ambiguity, leaping to solution based on assumption, and failing to take the time to explore what is unknown and learning to be comfortable in, and taking the…

Oliver, Steven Thurston – About Campus, 2018
Many of us recognize that it is important for black male students to have safe spaces to share their experiences, such as overt racism, microaggressions, and isolation, and connect with other students sharing the same experiences. However, Steven Thurston Oliver points out that, often, when attempts to provide community are just starting to take…

Wilson Kwamogi Okello and David Pérez II highlight Christian's story from their study of 100 Latino undergraduate men at 20 selective universities.

Sriram, Rishi – About Campus, 2018
Society can be obsessed with the concept of intelligence, according to the author. Parents want to know if their children are smart. Schools try to detect the intelligence of children so that they can separate them into "gifted and talented" programs on one end of the spectrum and remedial programs on the other. Employers want to know if…

Hannah, John; Ellis, Tesni – About Campus, 2018
In a response to an article in the March 2017 issue of "About Campus" (see EJ1166502, "Shifting to Curricular Approaches to Learning beyond the Classroom"), John Hannah and Tesni Ellis challenge a rigid curricular approach to student affairs.

Wood, J. Luke – About Campus, 2012
"Open access" is a core mission component of the community college. Through this mission, public two-year colleges provide postsecondary opportunities to nearly all individuals desiring further education. However, access is not necessarily synonymous with success. Many students, including black males, have concerning levels of success, or the lack…

Bresciani, Marilee J. – About Campus, 2012
While there are hypotheses and theories about which portions of the brain appear to regulate which types of thinking and emotion, people aren't sure how to "change" those parts of the brain to improve critical thinking. Furthermore, while recent studies point to something called neuroplasticity, which hypothesizes that what one does, what one…

Lawry, John D. – About Campus, 2012
Part I, "Searching for the Right Way to Begin Class," described the various iterations of beginning class rituals the author used over the years.

Rosenberger, Eric W. – About Campus, 2011
Traditional-age college students face a host of challenges during the transition from home to campus. Perhaps one of the most substantial challenges--one that relates directly to adjustment and quality of life--involves the formation of new relationships, and the awareness, development, and establishment of boundaries between their own emerging…

Shushok, Frank, Jr.; Scales, T. Laine; Sriram, Rishi; Kidd, Vera – About Campus, 2011
There is likely no campus facility where students spend more time than a residence hall--not the student union, an academic building, or an athletic facility. Especially on a residential campus, where students may spend two, three, or more years living in residence, the potential impact of campus residential environments on student learning is…

Lundberg, Carol – About Campus, 2011
Students' life circumstances need not marginalize them. The author's students--Margot and Steve--missed out on her full support because she assumed they had lots of support of their own, given their race and the socioeconomic status she assigned to them. She focused on their papers, not their lives. The complicated areas of students' lives don't…
