Sadly, one fourth of those that enter a higher institution of learning will drop out after the first year. Oftentimes the person leaving realizes that their expectations of college were not in sync with the reality. This is problematic as nothing sets up an individual for success in quite the same way as a degree from an institution of higher learning. Many that drop out find that that one decision sets them on a far more economically challenging path than they would otherwise be traveling.
The best solution is obviously to prevent the leaving of new students all together. The 2018 Academic Success Lab is geared specifically for new college-bound students. The roster of materials covered is all about what makes the new environment such students are about to face different from what they experienced in High School. Acclimating their lens of expectation early is key. There will be productivity hacks offered, reviews of germane technology they could find useful, as well as note-taking tips and lots to know about test-taking, defeating distraction, using a syllabus and getting organized with a calendar.
