If students don’t know the “unwritten rules” for community college success – how might it affect them? This book meets students where they are and helps them develop a plan to take care of any situation.
The Community College Experience recognizes Student Success is decided by motivation, preparation, knowledge, persistence, and relationships, the outcome largely measured by performance in other courses from the first term during the college career. Students are steadily not prepared for the social and cultural challenges such as meeting expectations, managing pressures on time, and navigating financial issues. Most of the standards for college success are indeed those “unwritten rules” that require an experienced perspective to anticipate, have in mind, and overcome. This text covers the topics students wish to make the transition into a community college culture, transform active learners, and make intelligent choices. Course materials are realistic and supportive. They resonate with diverse student backgrounds, including first-generation college students, students of color, returning adults, and others. Once students know the “rules” – written and unwritten – they may be able to adapt their plan for a more successful college experience.
