Going to College tells the powerful story of how high school students make choices about postsecondary education. Drawing on their unprecedented nine-year study of high school students, the authors explore how students and their parents negotiate these important decisions. Family background, finances, education, information�all influence students' plans after high school and the career paths they pursue, as do the more subtle messages delivered by parents and counselors which shape adolescents' self-expectations. For high school guidance counselors, college admissions counselors, parents and teachers, and public policy makers, this book is a valuable resource that explains the decision-making process and helps adults to help students make appropriate choices. The authors identify predisposition, search, and choice as the three stages in the student decision-making process. Predisposition refers to the plans students develop for education or work after they graduate from high school. The search stage involves students discovering and evaluating a variety of colleges and universities. In the choice stage, students choose a school to attend from among a list of institutions that are being seriously considered. Understanding exactly how students move through the predisposition, search, and choice stages of the college decision-making process can help students and parents prepare themselves for this process and consider a wider array of options. For education professionals, understanding this process can lead to new initiatives to guide students and families effectively�by providing better incentives for college savings, for example, or devising more effective early information programs about postsecondary education. Going to College is the first book to seriously study over an extended period the decisions that have a pervasive and lasting impact on individual careers, livelihoods, and lifestyles. The authors conclude with important recommendations for improving academic support, exploring various financial options, providing early encouragement�in other words, for recognizing the factors that influence students' decisions, and knowing when to pay attention to them.

If you deal with today's students as a marketer, college faculty member, administrator, parent, or high school counselor, this hands-on guide is a necessary addition to your bookshelf. The new, updated edition features the latest data on the Millennial Generation and how they are changing--and will continue to change--college life. Just as profoundly as their Boomer and Gen-X parents did, college students and their younger siblings have different expectations for their college experience. The ways that they involve their parents in their lives are very different than the relationship between Boomers and their parents. A new chapter in this second edition addresses the shift from Boomer to Gen-X parents of college students, the next big transition on the doorstep of higher education. The authors address issues ranging from the rise of ratings-driven admissions, to the rising burden of student loans, to greater challenges facing career counselors, to the new transition from Boomer "helicopter" parents to Gen-X "stealth fighter" parents. The new edition also presents original survey results on college students and the parents of college students. This exciting new feature is sponsored by Datatel Corporation and Chartwells, and was carried out by Crux Research in collaboration with LifeCourse Associates. With this book, you will find out why Millennial college students: * Like to work in teams * Are risking less and planning more * Find money and class to be more divisive than race Learn how this generation of college students is different and what changes you must make in your approach to recruit them and market to them successfully.

In this book the author, a former Secretary of Education explores the answer to a critical question: Should we keep sending our kids to college? The American system of higher education comprises some of the best universities, teachers, and students the world has ever seen. Millions of students around the globe want nothing more in their life than to attend an American university. However, many of America's colleges and universities today have serious academic, institutional, and other performance problems, and it is quickly approaching a crisis point, if it is not there already. Despite some excellent colleges and quality programs at many colleges, too much of higher education is wildly expensive. Students often graduate having learned little, or do notgraduate at all. They are subjected to all types of non-academic distractions. For these reasons, many students would be better served exploring other educational alternatives. Here the authors assess the problems of American higher education at variouslevels, from runaway costs to inferior academics to poor graduation rates to political indoctrination, and propose serious reforms and alternative methods for improving higher education so that it better serves students.

During his time as a professor, the author has learned that although most university students are smart and capable, many of them go about their educations in a fashion that does not lead to success. This is because knowing what it takes to do well in college is never learned in high school, and really, it is never explicitly taught in college either. There are simple formulas for doing well in school and this book was written to give readers some of the keys to academic excellence. ""So, You Are Going to College?!" " (Second Edition) is a fun read, as the author's own research points to the notion that the more you like a class the more you: learn, are motivated to learn, are satisfied with your communication with your teacher, and participate in class. By reading this book, you will learn some of the expectations professors have of their students and you will learn some of the behaviors you need to perform if you want to do well in college. This enjoyable, yet brief and to the point, book includes: - A look at some of the myths students have about professors and about college in general. - Discussion on the number one rule for success in life, being an adult. - Some of the expectations professors have for their communication with students. - How to listen effectively in class, a guide to help students learn more and daydream less. - The formulas for doing well on exams and helping students become aware of their goals in college. San Bolkan earned a PhD in Interpersonal Communication from the University of Texas, Austin, in 2007 and is currently a faculty member in the Department of Communication Studies at California State University, Long Beach. He has taught a variety of courses including Communication Theory, Interpersonal Communication, Communication in Close Relationships, Public Speaking, Corporate Communication, Communication Training and Development in Organizations, and Risk, Crisis, and Interagency Communication. His research focuses on both applied communication and instructional communication with works published in a variety of peer-reviewed outlets including the Journal of Applied Communication Research, the Journal of Instructional Psychology, Basic and Applied Social Psychology, the Journal of Classroom Interaction, and Communication Education.

Acceptance by a top college is more than a gold star on a high school graduate's forehead today. It has morphed into the ultimate "good parenting" stamp of approval--the better the bumper sticker, the better the parent, right? Parents of juniors and seniors in high school fret over SAT scores and essays, obsessed with getting their kids into the right college, while their children push for independence. I'm Going to College---Not You! is a resource for parents, written by parents who've been in their shoes. Kenyon College dean Jennifer Delahunty shares her unique perspective (and her daughter's) on one of the toughest periods of parenting, and has assembled a top-notch group of writers that includes best-selling authors, college professors and admissions directors, and journalists. Their experiences with the difficult balancing act between control freak and resource answer questions like: --how can a parent be less of a "helicopter" (hovering) and more of a "booster rocket" (uplifting)? --what do you do when your child wants to put off college to become a rock star? and --how will you keep from wanting to kill each other?

Abstract: This study examined the role of guilt among Latino first generation college students and their educational journey as they leave their family and community to pursue higher education. For first generation college students, going to college is breaking away from the norm of not going to college, which for many family members who have no college experience, they cannot understand the reason why their loved one is separating themselves from their close nit family and community. This notion of leaving their family and community behind can elicit feelings of guilt for not being physically available due to distance or the demands of being a college student. This study looked at the lived experience of six participants and their feelings of guilt. The conceptual framework used was a combination of Critical Race Theory and Survivor Guilt to fully understand the stories of the six participants. This qualitative study used was a narrative design to fully understand the lived experiences. The findings revealed that guilt was caused when the participants put their needs before the needs of their family and attended college. Another significant finding was that for the females in the study, they all stated that guilt was brought on due to the physical distance between them and their families. As for the males who left home to go to college, they felt financially guilty for either causing financial problems at home or not being able to support their family with the bills. This study is intended to bring forth the guilt that Latino first generation college students face from leaving home and how colleges should be aware. This study also address recommendations for policy and practice that can better support Latino first generation college students and their families at home and in a college setting.

The aim of this book is to answer from an economics viewpoint such questions as why some people go to college while others do not, and why the percentages of different types of students going to college have changed so dramatically throughout the world over the past few decades. The information contained is up-to-date, but the contents will be accessible even to those without a major in economics. The author makes many original contributions to the field of economics of education, in particular by giving serious consideration to cases of capital market imperfection. The book is written so that the reader can gain a multi-dimensional and comprehensive understanding of major issues related to college-going behavior. While specialists of this field will find it indispensable, economics students up to postgraduate level can use this volume as a textbook on the economics of education or on applied microeconomics.
