North Hills Preparatory Tony J. Walker Inspire Counselor
57% of all students that decide college is ‘not for them’, do so after their 2 nd semester of college The most significant factors which contribute to college success are “feeling connected to the university and feeling supported” (Dixon, Rayle & Chung, 2007) Those who struggle with the adjustment towards independent living, have a significantly higher chance of not performing as well in college, or dropping out, as their more independent peers. Strong psycho-social support equates to “greater persistence” in students. (Nicpon et al, 2006)
