VILLAGE IMPACT WISE Village – WISE students are retained at a higher rate in the science disciplines than students not in WISE. – For College of Engineering students, the matriculation rates of WISE students were markedly higher than for other female students in engineering programs, as well being higher than for male students. – Students who return to WISE for a second year maintain a significantly higher cumulative GPA than non- WISE students and WISE students who do not return for the sophomore year.
VILLAGE IMPACT FYC VILLAGE – When the 2008 FYC cohort was compared to peers, FYC students had significantly higher levels of two- and three-year retention than did their matched peers. – When compared to their peers, FYC students changed majors significantly less often than their matched peers. – FYC Village residents post higher cumulative GPAs than non-village residents after the 2nd, 4th, 6th, and 8th semesters.
2008 and 2013 Cohort College Preparation by Housing Choice
Conclusion NC State is consistent with the literature: – LLV students are better prepared and more successful – Causality of LLV participation and increased success cannot be inferred – Student living in Villages participate in more activities. – LLV participants are retained to University Housing
“It’s the next best thing to home. The Village helped me transition to college. It was a way for strangers to come together around a common interest and become friends.” Gene Honeycutt Impact Leadership Village “It definitely feel like the people who are a part of a Village get a step up. We get a little bit extra in our first year experiences than people who may not choose to be part of the Village.” Amanda McKnight Women of Welch Village
“I like the breadth of diversity of people living in the Village. It’s really a community. Everyone cares about learning and not just schooling.” Ravi Chittilla Honors Village “The Global Village has enhanced my college experience ten-fold.” Hannah Dewane Global Village
