Engaging Students Book Review:

ÿ"Engaging Students is the first comprehensive manuscript on research into student engagement in South African higher education. Each of the chapters has a clear, distinguishable focus and makes an original contribution in and of itself, while retaining the central focus on student engagement. The book provides a rich, informative picture of the current state of student engagement evaluation, while also highlighting challenges and opportunities for future advances. A particular strength of this publication is its emphasis on the importance of taking evidence-based decisions, and showing how the South African Survey of Student Engagement (SASSE) can provide the evidence for well-informed changes in policy and practice in order to enhance student success." - Prof Magda Fourie-Malherbe, Stellenbosch University

Decision Making for Student Success Book Review:

Each year, many students with affordable college options and the academic skills needed to succeed do not enroll at all, enroll at institutions where they are not well-positioned for success, or drop out of college before earning a credential. Efforts to address these challenges have included changes in financial aid policy, increased availability of information, and enhanced academic support. This volume argues that the efficacy of these strategies can be improved by taking account of contemporary research on how students make choices. In Decision Making for Student Success, scholars from the fields of behavioral economics, education, and public policy explore contemporary research on decision-making and highlight behavioral insights that can improve postsecondary access and success. This exciting volume will provide scholars, researchers, and higher education administrators with valuable perspectives and low-cost strategies that they can employ to improve outcomes for underserved populations.

Psychological Keys to Student Success Book Review:

Are you a high school student thinking about going to college? Are you already taking classes at the college level? Perhaps you are thinking about going to (or returning to) college after working a job or career for many years. No matter what your personal situation is, if you are considering going to college, the Psychological Keys to Student Success (PK2SS) is a book designed for you. Students get advice about how to study all the time; reading, highlighting, reviewing, memorizing, making flashcards, and summarizing are common studying strategies. However, to maximize your learning, you also need many thinking skills and personal characteristics. These are skills and characteristics that most teachers don't teach you about. The emphasis of this book is teaching you HOW TO THINK, which will make your studying skills more effective and help you keep up with the rigors of a college education. Earning a college degree is hard work. It requires a lot of effort, some serious concentration, and a stick-with-it attitude. Decades of psychological research show there are consistent differences between students who do well in college and those who do not. Which do you want to be? By selecting this book, you will benefit from a lot of the research as well as the author's counseling and teaching experience. Each Psychological Key to Student Success is a thinking skill or personal characteristic that can greatly improve your academic achievement and chances for success in college. In this book, you will learn about the importance of motivation, beliefs, explanations for success (and failure), goals, interest, confidence, thinking and thinking errors, self-control, and culture. The Psychological Keys to Student Success address the thinking skills and personal characteristics you can develop in order to thrive, not just survive, in college.

Increasing Persistence Book Review:

Praise for Increasing Persistence "What a gem! This is a requisite text for enrollment practitioners, higher education scholars, and progressive public policy makers dedicated to understanding the processes involved in increasing student retention and success rates. The authors' data-focused approach identifies many of the best practices and fundamental efforts that can make a positive impact at most colleges and universities. Increasing Persistence provides an ideal organizational framework for developing student retention plans. —Jay W. Goff, vice president of enrollment and retention management, Saint Louis University "Because community colleges have made student persistence to graduation or career certification a national priority, they will find this book an invaluable resource for identifying and implementing practices that have a documented impact on student success." —James Hudgins, president emeritus, South Carolina Technical/Community College System; director, Community College leadership Alliance, University of South Carolina "The authors have crafted a highly-readable and much-needed synthesis of the complex literature on college student persistence and completion, and present a fresh model for student success that will be of interest to applied practitioners. This book is not only critical reading for all stakeholders in higher education, but also an easily accessible required text for graduate students of the discipline." —Toni Strollo Holbrook, associate dean of the college, Rollins College "The authors provide a focused and contextualized view of college student success that tells us not only what matters but also reminds us why it matters to individual students, educators, and society as whole." —Margot Saltonstall, associate director for assessment enrollment management and student affairs, Northern Arizona University

The fifth edition covers a broad range of relevant topics including historical roots and development of the profession, philosophies and ethical standards, legal issues, theoretical bases of the profession, organizing and managing student affairs programs, and essential competencies: leadership, multiculturalism, supervision, teaching, counseling and helping skills, advising and consultation, conflict resolution, community development, professionalism, and developing institutional partnerships. It also addresses the future of student affairs practice and how it is informed by student learning outcomes and technology.

Thriving in Transitions Book Review:

Thriving in Transitions: A Research-Based Approach to College Student Success represents a paradigm shift in the student success literature. Grounded in positive psychology, the thriving concept reframes the student success conversation by focusing on the characteristics amenable to change and that promote high levels of academic, interpersonal, and intrapersonal performance in the college environment. The authors contend that a focus on remediating student characteristics or merely encouraging specific behaviors is inadequate to promote success in college and beyond. The collection presents six research studies describing the characteristics that predict thriving in different groups of college students, including first-year students, transfer students, high-risk students, students of color, sophomores, and seniors, and offers recommendations for helping students thrive in college and life.

Connecting in College Book Review:

Many college students rely on their friends for more than just having fun. But surprisingly, we know very little about what college students friendships look like, or how they might benefit from these friendships, socially and academically, in the short and long term. At a time when only four out of ten students graduate from four-year colleges within four years, understanding friendships may help better assist students and institutions in drawing on friends benefits and avoiding their pitfalls. In this book, sociologist Janice McCabe explores how friendship networks matter for college students lives both during and after college. In doing so, she identifies different types of friendship networksfor instance, the extent to which young people have tight cohesive friendship groups, or move effortlessly through different social circlesand how these networks are associated with social and academic success for students from different race, gender, and class backgrounds. The benefits of friendship are not the same for all friends, and these benefits also are not the same for all students; McCabe finds instead that friendship network type influences how friends matter for students academic and social successes and failures."
